    Gimp install problem

    Tried installing from package manager as well as from terminal. Same results, any help in what I'm doing wrong?

    XXXX@XXXX-Latitude-D810:~$ apt-get install gimp
    E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

    You have to use sudo and your password
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gimp
    If you want some good plug-ins with Gimp

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gimp-data-extras gimp-dcraw gimp-resynthesizer gimp-plugin-registry gimp-texturize

    Oops - the gimp installation may not be the bigger issue, here is the error message received:

    whoopsie -s /bin/false -u 116 whoopsie' returned error code 1. Exiting.
    dpkg: error processing whoopsie (--configure):
    subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    No apport report written because MaxReports is reached already
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    whoopsie
    Error in function:
    Setting up whoopsie (0.1.25) ...
    useradd: cannot lock /etc/passwd; try again later.
    adduser: `/usr/sbin/useradd -d /nonexistent -g whoopsie -s /bin/false -u 116 whoopsie' returned error code 1. Exiting.
    dpkg: error processing whoopsie (--configure):
    subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

    Any help appreciated as I love ubuntu, no nothing, but enjoy trying.
