I was running an upgrade with the apt-get command, and it was taking an exceptionally long time because half way through my ISP hit me in the face with their fair usage policy.
After sitting outside & watching the rain for awhile my electronics regained consciousness, so I went back to complete the upgrade and my terminal scolds me with
"E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem."
The last bit of legible info was all this:
Installing (ri/RDoc) documention for (stuff and such) ERROR: Could not find a valid gem 'watobo-0.9.8.724.gem' (>= 0) in any repository rm: cannot remove `watobo-0.9.8.724.gem': No such file or directory Setting up metasploit (4.3.0-bt1) ... Upgrading Pre-Existing Installation... /opt/metasploit/postgresql/scripts/ctl.sh : postgresql (pid 1191) already running prosvc is running metasploit is running [*] [*] Attempting to update the Metasploit Framework... [*]
So on it goes for miles, talking about gem caches, rubies, & stuff I wish I had. All up until:
…and there it has sat, all night.
If I stop it, will I still get the dpkg error (on the off chance that I won't), or if so what do I need to to resume using apt-get commands and its Super Cow Powers?
