dpkg --configure -a makes ubuntu crash

Like several people on askubuntu, I'm facing some problems when using sudo apt-get dpkg --configure -a. I was trying to install a packet with apt-get install when terminal told me:

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

When I use this command, the last info I can read are:

Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-59-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img.3.19.0-59-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-58-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img.3.19.0-58-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-56-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img.3.19.0-56-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-51-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img.3.19.0-51-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-49-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img.3.19.0-49-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-47-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img.3.19.0-47-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-43-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img.3.19.0-43-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-42-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img.3.19.0-42-generic Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-3.19.0-25-generic Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img.3.19.0-25-generic 

When I use uname -r to print the kernel used in my system, I can read: 3.19.0-58-generic

I've been reading many thread around this problem, but rather none gave me a hint of what I should do. Does someone met the same problem?

What were you trying to install?

It seems to be failing when updating GRUB.

Try booting to a previous kernel, like -56 (from GRUB), and see if you can run "sudo update-grub", without the quotes, in the terminal. If that works, try rebooting to the default kernel -58 or -59.
