Hi All, i could int able to install sudo aptitude install zip file in debian it delivering following error

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of samba:

Package libpam0g is not configured yet.

[ ERR] Reading state information
E: Could not get lock /var/lock/aptitude - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)

W: Could not lock the cache file; this usually means that dpkg or another apt tool is already installing packages. Opening in read-only mode; any changes you make to the states of packages will NOT be preserved!
