Auto upgrade & Administrative password changing

Posted 01-06-2012 at 06:52 PM by bobacker

I got two new question. 1. I have this problem when I use a Ubuntu, also now with my new Kubuntu.
It tell me I have 6 security update are available and also 20 software upgrade are available, to down on bottom of my task bar. (automatic upgrade system) Went I try to upgrade all these program I get a pop up box saying Another application seems to be using the package system at this time. You must close all other package managers, before you will be able to install or remove any packages.
Where do I go or find this to turn it off?, where are they talking about?
It also told me I have to individual upgrade each one on new package, so that mean, I have type each one in manual? Because it won't let you upgrade all them at once?

2nd question: when I try to upgrade the system now it ask me for a administrative password which is differ from the one I was giving by manufacture, where I brought this computer. How do I change this? It do this will it mess up thing more by doing so?
I have found in system setting on this page saying Enter the administrative password ,
it said also user management system setting 1 users & Group Administrative. Asking for a password to be created. Question what is next step, after I do this? Am I suppose to create or change this password so I can use whole system if going ask me for a administration password from old one from where I brought from?
