Exclamation GDebi Package Installer will not install new packages

I'm being notified an error with the dpkg that must be ran manually because there is another package manager running but there is no other, visibly, running. I can not update or install software because of this.

Check top from a terminal (as root) and see if apt or aptitude is running in the background.
If one of them is, press k then enter the pid number to kill it.
