Recently on 8.04, when I try to run synaptic package manager, I get this

An error occured

The following details are provided:

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

So I opened terminal and typed 

dpkg --configure -a

A lot of text was produced but it didn't help.


also, how do i "report"
