Linux Problem

I tried to upgrade using
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update
but it showed the error
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
Tried using add/remove application but got the same error
ran : dpkg --configure -a
but then this message comes: dpkg: requested operation requires superuser privilege
This is driving me crazy
P.S. I am using Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Version)

when I am trying to update or install anything new then i get this error
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.
When you say you tried using the add/remove application, do you mean the Synaptic one? What are package planning to download?

I think you need to be logged in as "root" to use this command:
"dpkg --configure -a"

[EDIT]
Try:

 sudo dpkg --configure -a
