Bug Description

Preconditions: Install Ubuntu 15.10. Start some time consuming apt-get locking operation, for example "apt-get install texlive-full".

Step 1: Open Language Support from System Settings. Notice it detects the apt-get is running and tells it is going to wait for the other apt-get to finish.

Step 2: Wait for the other apt-get to finish.

Step 3: Notice that Language Support detects the finishing of the other apt-get.

What happens next is that Language Support fails with error message. However, the install is now broken and the user is not able to reinstall the previously failed language support packages. When the computer is booted there are also errors about broken language packages.
