How do I get the ksplash*.* to be removed permanently so apt-get and software installer will work.Code:ramesh@ramesh-Aspire-V3-771:~$ apt-get upgrade 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? ramesh@ramesh-Aspire-V3-771:~$ sudo apt-get upgrad E: Invalid operation upgrad ramesh@ramesh-Aspire-V3-771:~$ sudo apt-get upgrade Reading package lists...
