Another app is currently holding the yum/apt lock; waiting for it to exit...

The cloud servers will update in the background when you first start/create them. If you see this, it means an update is running and you need to wait for it to finish before you can use `yum` or `apt` to install or update the server. Sometimes this can take several minutes, depending on how many updates need to run.

If the server takes more than 5 minutes to finish updating, submit a ticket (or email support@LinuxAcademy.com) with the hands-on lab and distribution name so we can make sure the image gets updated.
