Which version of Kubuntu are you using?
My hunch - and I've had this problem with Synaptic - is that you have
Update Manager set to check for updates at start up, so that when you
turn on, it's automatically polling the repositories, and put a lock on
any other apt-using program.
Have you checked Ksysguard (K Menu > system > Performance monitor)
Proces table to see if UDM is running?
