MInt Update error-SOLVED

Postby sarahmarienc on Thu Dec 04, 2008 4:26 pm

Getting an error while trying to do updates for Mint6:

E: Could not get lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the download directory

The specific set of updates I was trying to do pertain to Firefox 3.0

Are any other package managers open at the time?

Oooops, I forgot to mark that I had figured this out. I now don't remember what the issue was but I did eventually get the update error to go away. :) Thanks for that thought though.
