Have you tried following the instructions to delete the lock file?

If you don't wish to delete it, rename it (I usually make such things *.bak files so they are easy to restore if necessary), then test.

Given that the file name is /home/eddie/.config/google-chrome/SingletonLock, open a terminal.

Code:
cd .config/google-chrome
ls   <------------"list files" to confirm the file is present.
mv SingletonLock SingletonLock.bak      <-----------renames to file.

or

rm SingletonLock   <--------deletes (removes) the file.
Alternatively, open your file manager, tell it to show hidden files (how to do that varies with the file manager--see the help files).

Navigate to /home/eddie/.config/google-chrome/, highlight the file, and right-click and select delete or rename.
