How did you try to update? Using the update widget or via terminal?  Were synaptic or gdebi running at the time this happened? The error message is quite clear: some other process was using sudo/apt and that's why you couldn't update your system. Try again and make sure nothing is using sudo/apt.

Hope this helps! :) 
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)
