    pandesm; Hi !

    The lock condition is indicative that you have more than one instance of a software manager running.
    Make sure that the Soft ware Center is not open, nor is synaptic open, aptitude nor apt-get is not running in any terminal. When all this is true, then reboot the system. To see what condition your condition is in, post the output of terminal codes:
    [code}sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade[/code]

    here there is help
