Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs. For help on reporting bugs, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs#When%20not%20to%20file%20a%20bug. There is also a vibrant support community available at http://askubuntu.com and you might consider asking your question there.

do you mean vlc? it should be available in the software center.

marcus aurelius (adbiz) said : #3

seeing that you're using 11.04, you can download it directly from the videolan site. they have a version for 11.04 there. otherwise, they provide a ppa that you can add to your software sources.

Hi please do this:
1. Open a terminal by hitting CTRL + ALT + T
2. Insert and run this command:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc vlc-plugin-pulse mozilla-plugin-vlc

3. Then copy and paste here all the terminal says.

Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?

Can you help with this problem?
