Yast 2 - System Management

I am getting this error when I want to open system management:

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.
