I get this message when my ubuntu system was crashed.

dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem

How to solve it?

Following the instructions in the message might help..."manually run" means run in a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal). – marcusw Mar 21 '10 at 23:18
ohh, I did it but this message is always there. that's why I asked the question here :-s – Hoang Pham Mar 22 '10 at 11:20

In a terminal run:

sudo dpkg --configure -a

(in english, as a super user, configure all the debian packages.)

this command does not help in this case, the message is just the same :-s – Hoang Pham Mar 22 '10 at 11:21
Hmmm... That's not normal! – Rich Bradshaw Mar 22 '10 at 14:04
