could someone help me to find a solution for this problem,
when i start running synaptic package manager it gives me the following error:
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
sudo dpkg --configure -a is tested on terminal as well. it gives following output:
root@kapia-laptop:/home/kapia# sudo dpkg --configure -a dpkg: status database area is locked by another process
