dpkg --configure -a





Hello!


I have seen in the Internet, many people have the problem, that they get following message:
"E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem."

When runing the command: 'sudo dpkg --configure -a', then first it starts, but it will not end in the Terminal.

Nothing changes on the Computer.

Followind commands are not able to execute: upgrade, purge, install and similar.


I also have got this trouble. On my Computer the problem was caused by installing "apache2". I cannot remove it, because "purge" does not work.


I have seen in the Internet, many people gave an answere to help. But I did not find any solution!

So I ask You to give me a way, how it could work. 

My idea was only to reinstall Debian


Best regards 
Peter
