Are you running ubuntu ? If so you will probably do better by asking for help on their forums. Most people here run Raspbian.Pi_User100 wrote: [email protected]ubuntu:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a

sudo apt-get install webmin
So I think you are now saying that your problem is not actually that you can't install webmin, it's that apt-get won't install anything.Pi_User100 wrote: It is a problem with dpkg, which I don't know how to resolve, any package I try to get wont install.
On a fully updated Raspbian Jessie with Pixel DE use wget to install WebMin as per their website, though you will need to have an active internet connection:Pi_User100 wrote:Hi everyone,
I bought a Raspberry Pi 3 - (Raspbian Jessie PIXEL - 2017-03-02-raspbian-jessie.img) and I am trying to install a package called: Webmin.
I have been troubleshooting for hours, but can't seem to get it working.
I have gotten the following errors:
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/) is another process using it?
E: Could not get lock /var/cache/apt/archives/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the download directory
E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
[email protected]:~$ sudo dpkg --configure -a
dpkg: error: dpkg status database is locked by another process
dpkg: error processing webmin (--remove):
Package is in a very bad inconsistent state - you should
reinstall it before attempting a removal.
Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1).
When I try to install webmin via apt-get, it just hangs at the line:
Unpacking webmin (1.831) over (1.831)...
No matter what I do it work, I have even tried to purge, remove and reinstall the package but I keep getting the same errors.
Can anyone help me.
Would be greatly appreciated.
