Hi,

do a 'man zip'. zip can do all this, if it's not installed, install it with 'apt-get install zip unzip'.
You can, of course, also use the standard linux stuff, archive with tar, pack with gzip or bzip2 and encrypt with gpg (password).

you have probably already resolved this issue, but if not: the reason is that you have some other program running that uses apt (synaptic, adept, kpackage, aptitude ...). Close it and try again.
