    The command you need to enter into the terminal is

    $ sudo dpkg --configure -a
    Then enter your password

    Please note: the $ sign signifies the terminal prompt. Do not type it

    By the way, the sudo command gives you root (superuser) privileges for
    a short time. It is the way Ubuntu performs root actions from within a
    normal user account and almost makes a root login obsolete.
