E: Could not get lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock directory /var/cache/apt/archives/


This can happen if apt-get doesn't exit correctly, or if you kill it while it's running. Reboot your computer, and try again.

When this error occurred I as running xfce from a usb.

 

I have now installed it to HD.

 

I selected to update....chose providers closer to me in Australia.....there was quite a long list of updates....

 

I have been presented with the screen below.......(this also presented itself when i was running xfce from the usb, and at that time i chose to replace)

 

Is there any possibility that this is the source of my worries in the first post ?

That was my first question, was this from a LinuxLiveSession? because I thought you installed KDE and was still running Xfce Live, and I was correct.  The thing is Condobloke, you don't want to ever Update a LinuxLiveSession.  You can Break the USB Install doing this, and is best to re-make the liveUSB imo after this.  You can however Install some programs and do some testing, and the only way to know what and what not to install is practice/experience.

 

P.S. Love your Signature

Yes, i should have known better....have encountered a similar situation before.....brain fart.......end of an 18 hour day......

 

Got that sorted.

 

Installed xfce on the torrents drive successfully.

 

Only remaining problem is getting two monitors setup....now that is a daunting task.....the settings in settings manager do not play nicely at all.

 

Thats probably yet another topic if I fail to get it sorted.

 

yawn.

Lol, just spotted this one, taking a stroll down the front page after my roadtrip.

 

Just FYI Brian - when you update (under a full install), if you are using the Terminal to update, eg

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

... you will get more information, and with warnings such as you experienced above, it will place at the end of the replacement offer, eg

 

"y/N"

 

meaning that No, don't replace, is the suggested and safer alternative, unless you know what you are doing.

 

Cheers, and I am off to look at your Monitor problems
