Installation Error, “Unable to lock the administration directory”

Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
this error occurs during installation of software when lock file is being modified
by some other process or when you are trying to install two different software at
the same time so get rid of this problem
1>install one software at a time

but the problem still persist then

run the following command

rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock

this command removes lock over lock file.location of the file may be different in
different linux operating system
