Dell Updates on Linux – Another instance of SUU is already running

If you’re trying to run Dell’s SUU on a Linux box and get the error “Another instance of SUU is already running”, check out this FAQ

I have summarised the steps below:

chattr -i /var/log/dell/suu/suu.lck
rm -f /var/log/dell/suu/suu.lck

You can then run SUU 🙂
