Fixing error “E: Could not get lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock – open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)”

Todays morning (March 27th, 2010) I have problem with my lovely ubuntu linux operating system.
root@ubuntu-linux#apt-get update
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the list directory

I'm never get problem like this before and then I open my favorite browser (Mozilla Firefox) and open my favorite search engine ( I try to find solution for my problem with this query "fix /var/lib/apt/lists/lock".

I get this solution:

root@ubuntu-linux#rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock

  1. Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp a lot approximately this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you can do with a few p.c. to force the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I'll certainly be back.
