Could Not Get Lock /Var/Lib/Apt/Lists/Lock Open (11: Resource Temporarily Unavailable) In Ubuntu

Posted by Weston Ganger on March 18, 2015

I had the following error in Ubuntu (I believe it was 12.04)

Could not get lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)

Heres what you have to do to fix it:

sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/* -vf 
sudo apt-get update
