I just burned Linux Mint XFCE and installed it today. I'm impressed (I have it on a low resource machine)
But it won't update. Update manager says: Another application is using APT. Synaptic says: Unable to get exclusive lock. This usually means that another package management application (like apt-get or aptitude) is already running. Please close that application first. GDebi Package Installer: Only one software management tool is allowed to run at the same time. Please close the other application e.g. Update Manager, aptitude or Synaptic first. Terminal: E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable). E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
I've tried sudo killall apt and sudo killall aptitude. Hasn't helped. What to do?
Any help given me would be much appreciated. Thanks for all the help in the past.
