Default re Help Pls - newbie's Mini9 w/Ubuntu is fubar :( - 04-17-2009, 09:27 PM

If anyone out there can help me & if so, eplain in dummy english what steps I need to take to fix this problem I would be so grateful - here's whats going on in a nutshell....

Just got my Mini9 less than a month ago, worked great - didn't use it for 1 wk, turned it on, said it had 186 updates available which started to come in and then the froze....and I get 2 messages - one says:

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

THEN WHEN I CLICK ON CLOSE TO CLOSE THE ABOVE MSG OUT, another box opens up in the lower right corner that says:

Install Problem!
The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. Please contact your computer administrator.

I am so sad that I can't use my mini - I tried calling Ubuntu US support, can't get through.

Can anyone help me please?
