    Default dpkg error ofter synaptic

    I was getting updates using Synaptic Package Manager when it seemed to be stuck for about 30 minutes. Restarted and got this message:

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

    Code:
    dpkg: parse error, in file `/var/lib/dpkg/updates/0017' near line 1:
     newline in field name `#padding'
    Running apt-get update results in same error. Running on a persistant usb. Any other info needed?
    Still kinda new to linux.

    Thanks for any info.
