'sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python2.6' which generated the error "Unable to lock directory /var/cache/apt/archives." I tried to remove a lock file that I read about on another post and open up SPM, but the error persisted. Any solutions (or kludgey quickfixes) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Let's try to clean up your apt-get cache.
Run this command;
sudo apt-get aptitude clean
sudo apt-get update
Now open the Synaptic package manager, do a search for the programs your interested in and install them that way.
