Linux Lite 4.8 on VM Won't Update.
« on: May 30, 2020, 09:27:47 pm »
Hi.

Just installed Linux Lite 4.8 on a vitual machine (VB) but it won't update.  It produces an error log.  (This is hand copied as the shared clipboard does not seem to working either - which is another issue.  However, the bad grammar is in the original  ???)

===
Install Updates could not be successfully download and install available updates.
...
E:Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend - open(11:Resource temporarily unavailable)
E:Unable to aquire the dpkg front end lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), is another process using it?
===
