Open up a root terminal, and say
ps aux | grep dpkg
and see what comes up. That'll show you all instances of the debian package management system running.
You can kill the instances with `kill <PID>' but it's more polite to do it within the app itself, if you can find it.
adept, aptitude, synaptic, apt-get, dpkg, easyubuntu and the software updater all use the above.
