• waiting for another package manager to close ?


    Hi everyone, completely unable to install/remove/update my system. Get constantly the message that another package manager has to be closed first but there IS no other manager open ?! Also updating on terminal doesn’t work. In other words : “Help” !

  • There’s a Lockdb file in your /var/lib/pacman
    You just can simply remove it, you can do it by terminalcommand or use your filemanager (Dolphin, Nautilus etc.) as root. After that you can update or install again.

  • Yes, the file is /var/lib/pacman/db.lck.

  • @manuel said in waiting for another package manager to close ?:

    /var/lib/pacman/db.lck

    and to remove this file:

    sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/db.lck
    sudo pacman -Syu
