Problems following update
My Dell Inspiron 1300 is running the latest ubuntu. A week or so ago I tried installing the latest updates. I had a problem with a very slow connection so I left the computer switched on to let it do it's thing. I assumed that everything had gone ok but every so often Update Manager kicks in prompting me to download the same updates. When I try to make the download and install it shows the error

E. Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned error code (2).

This also appears when I have tried to install programmes via add/remove since the failed updated process.

Any help greatly received but I am a linux technophobe so in laymans terms please..
