There are 2 threads (don't worry, both are very short :) ) that discuss this issue:
1. Software Manager - Waiting for lock, Infinite: ... g+for+lock
2. Software Manager says that WINE is "Waiting for lock": ... g+for+lock

There are also 2 related threads (these are also short):
1. Synaptic stopped working: ... g+for+lock
2. Synaptic won't open: ... elete+lock
