    Try this:

    Code:
    killall PackageKit
    If that does not work:

    Code:
    killall -9 PackageKit
    This behaviour is the reason why I deactivated that updater-thingy.

    Edit: Check if the process is actually called "PackageKit", I do not know that. Plus run these commands as root.

    Found this post while searching for same error which I just got resolved by gropiuskalle 's method.

    In my case the process name was packagekitd in OpenSuSe 12.1 version.
    @ info to newbies who coming across this problem >> use top command to see the process name in the list.
