I have an awful lot of problems on my system, but this seems to be the starting point. So I'd like to start with it, I'll ask the rest later.
Whenever I'm trying to perform a command, I get a message:
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
I tried the thread called >How do I fix a “Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock” problem?< and executed the commands:
sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock
Which results in a:
rm: cannot remove `/var/lib/apt/lists/lock': No such file or directory
When I tried:
sudo fuser -cuk /var/lib/dpkg/lock; sudo rm -f /var/lib/dpkg/lock
it froze my system solid.
So, any ideas? Thank you very much!
NOTE: I'm a complete beginner in terms of linux, I have no idea how it works, so please, give me a grandma explanation, as much as possible. Thank you
