Probably, While you are trying to compile your package, it is being used by another session.

Execute this select statement to determine wheter the package is locked or not. If so you'll see it in column object_name.

select
     vs.SID           ,
     vs.SERIAL#       ,
     uo.OBJECT_NAME   ,
     uo.OBJECT_TYPE   ,        
     uo.OBJECT_ID     ,      
     substr( vs.USERNAME, 1, 20 )  USERNAME    ,
     vs.STATUS        ,
     vs.SCHEMANAME    ,
     substr( vs.OSUSER, 1, 20 )   OSUSER      ,
     vs.MACHINE       ,
     vs.TERMINAL      ,
     vs.PROGRAM       ,
     vs.TYPE                
from
     v$session         vs,
     v$locked_object   vlo,
     all_objects       uo
where
     vlo.object_id  =   uo.object_id
and     vs.process     =   vlo.process;

This select is intended to be run under 'sys' user.

Hi,
This error is mostly comes when some other user or session is executing the package.

At the time when you get this error , open the session with sys user and try to execute the following sql.

select sid,owner,object,type from v$access
WHERE object = '<package>';

if it returns someting , it means the packages is executed by that session.

You will able to compile the package successfully by either killing that session or waiting the session to finish execution.

Hope this helps
Sam..
