    this very often happens when the automatic updating applet is doing its work.

    Wait a little until it's finished and try again.

    Exactly. Your diagnose is correct. Only one software management tool can run at a time. So when the update applet checks for updates (e.g. direct after login), you can not use YaST > Software > software management. Either wait (as you did), or kill the applet.
