    You can not have two processes trying to install software at the same time. Most likely you have Yast and Uppdater trying to run at the same time. You would need to be root to kill the process.

    become root in the console window by typing

    su -

    the - is important

    then
    kill PID
    where PID is the process ID you want to kill.
