This question already has an answer here:
I can't install any thing using
It gives this error:
E: could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) E: unable to lock the administration directory (var/lib/dpkg), its another process using it
dpkg --configure -a dpkg: error: dpkg status database is locked by another process. dpkg --configure -a --force-congnew dpkg: error: dpkg status database is locked by another process.
Although I have shut down and restart the system to kill all other hidden process but do not know how to fix it.
I am using all these commands as a super user.
