Thanks to this, I'm debating whether to go back to 8.04. Has this issue been resolved already?

Do you have synaptic or adept running in the background? This has nothing to do with whether you are running Intrepid or Hardy.

Suspect you have synaptic open at the same time as trying to run add/remove. Only one package manager can operate at the one time.

How can you tell which are open at the same time?

Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal

ps -A
Look at the output from the command above and see if you see any synaptic, apt-get, apt, or adept.

I did a reboot, and it fixed the issue. Now, in the output there is only -synaptic.

Looks like I posted too early ;)

Thanks for the help.
