My guess is that while you open the Terminal, you have your Synaptic Package Manager running and that locked the database area.

Try to close the Synaptic Package Manager (or even re-start the system if needed) and enter the command via the Terminal again.

I believe you can solve it while your cup of tea is still hot.
