    I tried narrowing this down running ps on my Ubuntu setup which will allow software install and updates ... the following processes I could not spot running on my setup ...
    Code:
    1650 ? 00:00:00 khpsbpkt
    2443 ? 00:00:00 knodemgrd_0
    3283 ? 00:00:00 kmmcd
    5304 ? 00:00:00 thinkpad-keys
    5889 ? 00:00:00 ssh-agent
    6020 ? 00:00:00 obex-data-serve
    6098 ? 00:00:00 evolution-data-
    6119 ? 00:00:00 evolution-excha
    9285 ? 00:00:00 gnome-vfs-daemo
    10615 ? 00:05:26 deluge
    10865 ? 00:00:00 watchdog/1
    10961 ? 00:00:00 iwl4965/0
    10963 ? 00:00:00 iwl4965/1
    11052 ? 00:00:00 iwl4965
    26439 ? 00:00:06 gnome-system-mo
    11207 ? 00:00:00 wpa_supplicant
    11353 ? 00:00:00 ntpd
    26103 ? 00:00:00 scsi_eh_7
    26104 ? 00:00:00 usb-storage
    26152 ? 00:00:00 mount.ntfs-3g
    I guess things like ntfs-3g are not the problem ... less sure about ntpd and obex-data-serve. I don't think a re-install will help as you are likely to end up in exactly the same position. I'd ensure you have the updater disabled and make sure any installation processes are complete and try again. You can use kill to remove processes you suspect are still causing issues ... but this is quite drastic ... see if you still have a problem after disabling automatic updates and restarting the system.

    Execute this :
    Code:
    dpkg --configure -a
    sudo apt-get update
    If it throws same error, execute this
    Code:
    sudo rm -rf /var/lib/dpkg/lock
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I am still having problems when I input the code. It says that I need 'superuser' privilege.
    Also, when I input the second code, nothing happens (to my knowledge at least).

    The "sudo" command gives you superuser privileges. Use it before the command that needs to be executed as superuser.

    It seems that everything is working much, although it states that a package is 'broken', and that I should use filters to find it. How should I go about finding this broken package that has caused so many problems?

    I am using Synaptic and Add/Remove Applications.

    Does sudo apt-get update lists any error message in output?

    It has finally worked.
    Everything seems to be working fine, and the installation of files through multiple protocols is now worker (ie Add/Remove Applications, Terminal, opening .deb files from home folder).
    Thank you guys very much for all the help you have offered and given here. I hope I can be as much of a help to community as you fine posters.
