Open a konsole (Kmenu -> System -> Konsole).

Then run this command:
'sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock'

If something is locking the database it will ask you if you really want to kill the process. You want to do that.

Then to clean up after adept you must run another command:
'sudo dpkg --configure -a'

You will now be able to use the package managers again.
There is a bug in adept, that pevents it from showing the java license ageement properly.

Please refer to for instructions on how to install Java properly on Kubuntu.

Hope this helps you.
