Failed Ubuntu Package Installation Fix 1.1

This is the Preparing Packages Fix.
After many hours manually going through the process of fixing bad installations, I automated the process.

The script fixes the \\\\\\\"preparing package\\\\\\\" error that can occur during software installations in Ubuntu.

I assume those who use it will have forced their installation to quit, leaving it in a state of disrepair.

Failed Ubuntu Package Installation Fix script will stop all DPKG processes, reconfigure DPKG, remove the broken package, and finally remove the lock on DPKG.

To install, copy this script into /home//.gnome2/nautilus-scripts

Replace with your own.

All .folders are hidden ones. The command line ctrl+h will reveal it.

The script requires the exact name of the failed package.
