Are you trying to update straight after booting the PC from a LL live image disk or USB drive ?

Updates can only be done after actually installing the software onto the PC and booting from the installed version.

Best to open a new thread rather but the 'could not get lock' error usually means an update check is already running and another one has been initiated.

It is possible that a manual check has been started while a periodic automatic background check was already running. If that is the case, simply wait a while before re-running the manual check or observe the update indicator in the bottom right.

Similarly it is not possible to do a manual update if the Synaptic package manager is open for any reason.  If that is the case, close Synaptic before initiating a manual check.
