sudo apt-get update problem
 
Code:

E: Could not get lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Couldn't lock list directory..are you root?

a) a program is already running and has locked it
b) you didn't sudo it

Make sure that when you run:
Code:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

that no other package manager is running. So make sure that Update Manager, Synaptic, and the Ubuntu Software Store are not running when you try to update / upgrade from the terminal ....

It's fixed.

It's polite to post how you fixed it.

Another apt was running in background.
It's stopped and everything is done.

Post #7. See #2 http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-4175522953/#2

No, of course you cannot use "apt-get update".

Not until you have changed those unstable <url>'s in /etc/apt/sources.list
... Or just wait to another day when the http://pk.archive.ubuntu.com
links are working again.

Please stop asking again .... in your four? similar threads.

zeeshanayub,

You've posted about the same issue multiple times, including hijacking other members' threads. Please refrain from this in the future. Thanks.
