Software Updates Failed - Debian jessie 8

Postby ira » 2017-05-08 16:01

I am running Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 64-bit
During the process of an system update (which started right after rebooting my pc, before the splash screen appears) I accidentally shut down my pc and thus I interrupt the process before being completed.

When I turned the PC I was able to succesfully login and then I tried to update the packages manually running
Code: Select all
apt-get update && apt-get upgrade


The update completed without errors. However, for this time on, every time I login to my debian system, I get after a few seconds a message at the bottom of the GNOME desktop that says
Code: Select all
Software Updates Failed
Failed to Update
The offline update failed in an unexpected way.
Detailed errors from the package manager follow:

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem


I have already run many times the
Code: Select all
dpkg --configure -a
which exits without errors (blank output) and also I have tried to upgrade and dist-upgrade my system, which I am able to do without errors too, but still I am getting this notification :(

How can I stop getting this message, please?

I have tried
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install -f
and I get the following output

Code: Select all
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.


It seems that my system has been successfully updated, however I am still getting the annoying notification from Software Updates manager (GNOME)
I also tried to locate any broken pages using synaptics but everything seems to be installed correctly... :|
