    apt-get keeps saying to check Internet, while I have a good connection

    I need to check if I have updates for Ubuntu. I am using 12.10 version , but either keeps telling me to check my internet connection while my connection works just fine or telling me this :


    E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/)

    what should I do ?

    If you are typing your password correctly after:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    maybe some program is using that file simultaneously, impeding its use.
    If this was the case, have you tried to update right after start up?

    I typed the PWD correctly, and yeah sometimes the first thing I do after start ups is checking for the Updates

    Are you saying it updated? You did not get the error message?
