Application in the Ubuntu Software Center is stuck trying to cancel

Asked by Brian Dahl on 2014-09-05

There is an application that is trying to cancel but it has not actually started to cancel the process yet. Now when I try and apply any updates I can not apply them because it says that there is another application running. How do I stop the cancelation?

Reboot and then run:

 sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a

Should do it. When asked to kill the process say YES.

Can you help with this problem?
