I decided to buy the Psychonauts PC game from the Ubuntu Software Center. Now, my laptop is practically empty, with only my OS and a few bits and bobs installed. The download for Psychonauts took about 6 hours, and I waited patiently for it to download the 4.4 GB. Now, however, it comes up with something to the effect of "The packages cannot be downloaded. Check for Internet connection problems."
I don't know if it had downloaded the files to anywhere that I could access, or is there no way but to spend another 6 hours and hope for the best? I've never had this problem whilst downloading or installing anything else, and it will only redirect me towards redownloading the whole thing when I try! Any help would be much appreciated.
After trying to install the previous packages with Synaptic and failing to run Psychonauts, I found that
sudo apt-get install psychonauts would work, but was getting
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/). Rebooting and running Terminal directly after start-up seemed to fix this and I am currently downloading Psychonauts through it at the same speed as that of USC. Possible work-around for my first time using commands?
