ps -aux |less will give you a list of running processes along with their PIDS, but in any case you can type
killall -15 synaptic and if -15 doesn't work then -9 should take care of it...

synaptic does not work correctly in background...
it is necessary to bring it in return for foreground,so that it continues the update process.

ps aux | grep foobar is my incantation of choice for finding rogue processes.

killall works as well.
