This question already has an answer here:
I want to perform multiple apt operations, llike
sudo apt install ubuntu-gnome-desktop in one terminal and
sudo apt remove lubuntu-desktop in another terminal. When I try to do this I get this (Please don't ask me why I had installed these desktops; I had done so many experiments on Ubuntu that I had to reinstall it many times due to breaking the system)
$ sudo apt autoremove 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?
I can do only one operations in at one time with apt!!
I know that it is not safe to break lock but I will take all risk on my own!!
My question is not a duplicate of this as i want to know about how to do in multiple terminals. I know these ways
apt install package1 package2 and
apt install package1 && apt remove package2. If do this
apt install pack1 && apt remove pack2 then I have to wait a long time for pack1 to install.
Also will it work if I break the lock?
