dpkg: status database area is locked by another process

                 

The Detail error message is :

/*

dpkg: status database area is locked by another process E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock – open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable) E:Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?

*/

This error might arise frequently in linux. There can be other way of fixing the problem.

I fix it by performing following step.

1. I run the ” rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock ” in terminal.

2. Then I run ” rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock ” .

Then I rebooted the linux(Ubuntu) Box.
