Re: how to unlock a a lock after a failed install (need help).
This error is usually reported when we try to run two apt-gets... like you may have the 'Software Updater" or Synaptic open and you try to use apt-get in the terminal. If you are doing so then don't and run only one apt-get application at one time.
