apt-get(where I was installing mysql-server and I was in the part of setting the password) when suddenly my connection dropped. When I returned back I tried re-typing my installation command to make sure that my installation went fine.
But, to my surprised, I got the said error every time I tried to create an installation.
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/)
Consulting the Blue SpaceBased on what I have read on the net (correct me if I am wrong with this), it seems
Solution the net suggestedIt seems that the only solution would be removing those locks manually.
sudo rm -f /var/lib/dpkg/lock sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock
I did try the installation again and it returned an error again:
debconf: DbDriver "config": /var/cache/debconf/config.dat is locked by another process: Resource temporarily unavailable
To resolve this, I rename all the
*.datfiles inside the
/var/cache/debconf. I said all since renaming just config.dat will just bring you up another error pointing to the other .dat files inside there.
After renaming, installation should now be fine and should continue.
