    [SOLVED] Can I ever install again?

    I installed LimeWire, Latest from, I accidentally logged out, and nothing will install, even system stuff now. It just says its lock, and it cant lock or cant unlock.

    System asked for these commands along the way:

    sudo dpkg --configure -a
    apt-get -f install
    When trying to install:
    paul@paul-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install avant-window-navigator
    E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
    When system updates try to install:
    A red (-) icon comes up in top right corner in system try "An error occrued, Please run Package manager from right-click menu or apt-get in terminal to see what is wrong. The error message was: ;Error : BrokenCount > 0' This usally means that your installed packages have unment dependencies

    When typing apt-get
    paul@paul-desktop:~$ apt get
    The program 'apt' can be found in the following packages:
     * sun-java6-jdk
     * sun-java5-jdk
     * openjdk-6-jdk
    Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>
    bash: apt: command not found

    Please help.
