Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

My problem is when I try update the repositives, following message appears in the console:

E: No se pudo abrir el fichero de bloqueo «/var/lib/dpkg/lock» - open (13: Permiso denegado)
E: No se encontró un archivo de réplica «/var/lib/dpkg/»

(English Translatrion:)

E: Could not open the lock file  «/var/lib/dpkg/lock» - open (13: permission denied)
E: No file replication was found «/var/lib/dpkg/»

What can I do?
