    This error indicates that their is potentially another administration tool running. Do you have additional drivers or the ubuntu software center open?

    You can delete the lock file with
    Code:
    rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock
    you may also need to delete the lock file in the cache directory
    Code:
    rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock
    You need to be a 'sudo' user before executing these commands.
