The idea would be to look for another application which is being installed or update it.
Wait for it to finish the installation or cancel it.
There are advantages and disadvantages to doing so.
It's not a method recommended lightly to inexperienced users, doing so means you understand and accept responsibility for breaking your system.

Current Kodibuntu is based on a LTS release (long term release) which is supported for 5 years, this means that it isn't required to upgrade the OS base in order to obtain updated or upgraded application packages.
To actually upgrade the underlying Linux which "Kodibuntu" is based on, it is possible to do so via release upgrade.
Which means another process is already using the mentioned directory (necessary for the application to be installed) through Synaptic Package Manager, Update Manger, terminal or Ubuntu Software Center.
If you cannot see the application then try running this command in the terminal to solve this error: If you do not know which is the root cause of error, then follow the instructions for each of them and then you can find it out.
