Problem with APT-GET

Forums: 

Hello people,

I use Ubuntu 11.10.

I wanted to delete the contents of /var/cache/apt/archives/ so I taped sudo rm * -R
But now, each time I want to install anything with sudo apt-get install 'packagename' the installation process does not launch and I receive this message:

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

Can you help me to fix this and explain me what happened ?

Thank you.
