SulaimanAhmed1 (10)

Hello there fellas! i am currently working on a project and half the time i get an error saying 'E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), are you root?' is there any way to fix that and be the root? and also i am getting issues with it saying Read-only filesystem. how do i fix that?

This is all because you arent a root. Root access is not allowed on replit, nor is it availible.
