It means that other process are using your install/package managers. Try to close opened "Synaptics" window or kill "unterminated" apt/aptitude commands.

Hi. It means another package administration program is running. If you have Synaptic or Add/Remove open, close them before running the terminal command again. If neither of those programs are open, it may be the update manager running in the background; just give it a few minutes and try again. Also, please be patient and don't start multiple threads; concentrate on one thread and one problem at a time and wait for others to reply.
