[SOLVED] “Dpkg: error: action option required”

When you try to install Google Chrome on Ubuntu, you may receive the following error:

Error message

“Dpkg: error: action option required”

Decision

This could be due to a command that you copied and pasted from somewhere in the terminal. Instead of – in the command, you could replace _, as shown below,

sudo dpkg –i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb

Correct the command and it should be like this

sudo dpkg -i google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb
