    System management is locked by the application with pid 4611 (/user/lib/yast2/bin/y2base)

    close this application before trying again.

    Look around your desktop(s) and minimized windows to find YaST already running, and close it.
    If you cannot find it, open a terminal, become root ("su") and kill it: "kill 4611".

    If you just booted up, YOU (Yast Online Update) is configured to run immediately and for maybe 5 minutes.

    During that time, you can't launch YAST.

    If you are running KDE, hit ctrl-esc on your keyboard for a 'task manager' like GUI.
