Why do I always get "urpmi database locked?"


I am trying to install the latest Mplayer on my box. I went to easy urpmi and set up the things there. Whenever I added a source, it said "urpmi database locked" Why is this? Now i don't even know how to go back to my original settings so that I can install from cds. But why does is say that the "urpmi database is locked" when I try to install it also? Is is something wrong on my computer or on their end?
