it's a _lock_, not a broken install (though there could be a broken install,
too). The lock file should be in /var/cache/apt somewhere, iirc. It's just
called "lock". Just remove it.
If you can't find it there (of course I don't have one), check in /var/run
or as a last resort run "updatedb" and then "locate lock"
