Arduino Micro w/ Linux Mint

Dear all,

I am currently dual booting Windows 10 and Linux Mint 17.2 and have been having trouble uploading sketches to my Arduino Micro when using Linux. The error message I get when trying to upload this is shown below:

avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "/dev/ttyACM0": Device or resource busy avrdude: ser_send(): write error: Bad file descriptor

Although rather slow, I am able to upload sketches to micro on windows successfully. Both operating systems recognize the boards serial ports and the board is brand new out of the box. Has anybody else had similar problems or know how to fix this?
