E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

I try running it but it says i need super-user privileges.

It happened whilst trying to install Bluefish from the software.

Help  >:(

Super-user privileges means use sudo before the command.

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg --configure -a
