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 I happen to install the above code, I've been displayed with the message stated above. Would you please get me the answers to resolve the issue and to connect to INTERNET using the device.

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04
