If I go to software and updates, when i leave it says that it needs to refresh the cache to make the changes or something like that. When i do it, it says refreshing cache. Sometimes the bar goes quickly, others it goes slower. No matter what when it hits the end, it stops. I then cannot do apt-get update or things like that because:

E: Could not get lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock directory /var/lib/apt/lists/
W: Target Packages (steam/binary-amd64/Packages) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:71 and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list:1
W: Target Packages (steam/binary-i386/Packages) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:71 and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list:1
W: Target Packages (steam/binary-all/Packages) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:71 and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list:1
W: Target Translations (steam/i18n/Translation-en_US) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:71 and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list:1
W: Target Translations (steam/i18n/Translation-en) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:71 and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list:1
W: Target DEP-11 (steam/dep11/Components-amd64.yml) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:71 and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list:1
W: Target DEP-11 (steam/dep11/Components-all.yml) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:71 and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list:1
W: Target DEP-11-icons (steam/dep11/icons-64x64.tar) is configured multiple times in /etc/apt/sources.list:71 and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/steam.list:1

This has happened to me on 2 entirely separate computers. Anyone know what the problem is and/or how to fix?

Hello TOMIS13LACK,

 

Since no replies I would go to Debian Forums and create an account and post your problem you are having.

An available solution may already exist to this particular problem.

I suspect the answer you'd get from the Debian Forum would be

https://wiki.debian.org/DontBreakDebian#Don.27t_make_a_FrankenDebian

i.e. your /etc/apt/sources.list isn't standard Debian https://wiki.debian.org/SourcesList
