I do not have a linux desktop and have not used ubuntu much but I can explain and I hope you can understand.

You need to either open a linux console terminal OR just press Ctrl - Alt - F2 . Then press enter and run the following command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure  followed by the package name you want to configure, or whatever it was that gave this error.

How can I fix the problem of not being able to use Synaptic Package Manager or Update Manager in Linux Mint 1i KDE?


Did you run sudo dpkg --configure -a in terminal? Can you reinstall the update manager? Sounds like everything needs to be removed and reinstalled from terminal, and maybe a sudo apt-get autoremove followed by an update? It seems like the only reason synaptic and software manager wouldn't work is you've over tinkered with your os, and maybe accidentally removed something you needed for those things to run. I'm new to Linux myself, so beyond that idk. If all else fails, backup and do a fresh install to get your system back to it's original state.

Installation of sqldeveloper on ubuntu 12.4


First, make sure you have JDK 7 installed. Then,
  1. Install alien with the command sudo apt-get install alien. This is used to convert RPM packages
  2. Download the Oracle SQL Developer package if you have not done so already.
  3. Run alien on the RPM package: alien -d package.rpm.
  4. Install the package with the command sudo dpkg -i package.deb. If there is a message saying there is a dependency problem while installing it, you can fix it by running sudo apt-get -f install.

How to install package manager in ubuntu?


A package manager is a program that installs and uninstalls software, and keeps track of all the components each piece of software needs.

Dpkg is the Ubuntu package manager dpkg is a medium-level tool to install, build, remove and manage Ubuntu packages. The primary and more user-friendly front-end for dpkg is dselect.dpkg itself is controlled entirely via command line parameters,which consist of exactly one action and zero or more options. The action-parameter tells dpkg what to do and options control the behavior of the action in some way.
Now we will see all the available commands for dpkg with examples
1) Install a package
Syntax
dpkg -i <.deb file name>
Example
dpkg -i avg71flm_r28-1_i386.deb
2) Install all packages recursively from a directory
Syntax
dpkg -R
Example
dpkg -R /usr/local/src
3) Unpack the package, but don’t configure it.
Syntax
dpkg --unpack package_file
If you use -R option is specified, package_file must refer to a directory instead.
Example
dpkg --unpack avg71flm_r28-1_i386.deb
4) Reconfigure an unpacked package
Syntax
dpkg --configure package
If -a is given instead of package, all unpacked but uncon-figured packages are configured.
Example
dpkg --configure avg71flm_r28-1_i386.deb
5) Remove an installed package except configuration files
Syntax
dpkg -r
Example
dpkg -r avg71flm_r28-1_i386.deb
6) Remove an installed package including configuration files
Syntax
dpkg -P
If you use -a is given instead of a package name, then all packages unpacked, but marked to be removed or purged in file /var/lib/dpkg/status, are removed or purged, respectively.
Example
dpkg -P avg71flm
7) Replace available packages info
Syntax
dpkg --update-avail <Packages-file>
With this option old information is replaced with the information in the Packages-file.
icon_cool.gif Merge with info from file
Syntax
dpkg --merge-avail <Packages-file>
With this option old informa-tion is combined with information from Packages-file.
The Packages-file distributed with Debian is simply named Packages.dpkg keeps its record of available packages in /var/lib/dpkg/available.
9) Update dpkg and dselect’s idea of which packages are available with information from the package pack-age_file.
Syntax
dpkg -A package_file
10) Forget about uninstalled unavailable packages.
Syntax
dpkg --forget-old-unavail
11) Erase the existing information about what packages are available.
Syntax
dpkg --clear-avail
12) Searches for packages that have been installed only partially on your system.
Syntax
dpkg -C
13) Compare Package versions version numbers
Syntax
dpkg --compare-versions ver1 op ver2
14) Display a brief help message.
Syntax
dpkg --help
15) Display dpkg licence.
Syntax
dpkg --licence (or) dpkg --license
16) Display dpkg version information.
Syntax
dpkg --version
17) Build a deb package.
Syntax
dpkg -b directory [filename]
18) List contents of a deb package.
Syntax
dpkg -c filename
19) Show information about a package.
Syntax
dpkg -I filename [control-file]
20) List packages matching given pattern.
Syntax
dpkg -l package-name-pattern
Example
dpkg -l vim
21) List all installed packages, along with package version and short description
Syntax
dpkg -l
22) Report status of specified package.
Syntax
dpkg -s package-name
Example
dpkg -s ssh
23) List files installed to your system from package.
Syntax
dpkg -L package-Name
Example
dpkg -L nagios2
24) Search for a filename from installed packages.
Syntax
dpkg -S filename-search-pattern
Example
dpkg -S /sbin/ifconfig
25) Display details about package
Syntax
dpkg -p package-name
Example
dpkg -p nagios2

Please check if this is any help for you.
