That's normal when the DB is being accessed either for adding or removing using urpmi. Should it remain locked after install or removals are complete, you may unlock it using;
Code: [ Select ]
rm -f "/<path_to>/urpmi/.LOCK"
(Typically /var/lib/) 
rm -f "/<path_to>/urpmi/.RPMLOCK"
  1. rm -f "/<path_to>/urpmi/.LOCK"
  2. (Typically /var/lib/) 
  3. or
  4. rm -f "/<path_to>/urpmi/.RPMLOCK"
