=========================== Install Updates Error log =========================== Install Updates could not successfully download and install available updates. Go to and paste the log below into a new or existing thread for assistance. ============ Log =========== E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend. It is held by process 2968 (apt-get) E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), is another process using it?

What's happening?
Some other application or command has it locked.
Have you ran an update previously or installing a package?
If not it maybe that Lite Updater is running in the background..

Give it a bit to complete any tasks else cancling or  reboot might help...

Not sure why but the original post is jacked up...
