    It’s been stuck here for about 45 minutes. I tried to run pacman from the command-line, but the database is locked. Everything I’ve seen about that just says to delete the db.lck file IF you’re sure nothing else is running. I can’t find anything that says what to do in this situation.

    I’m able to use the machine right now (typing this on it), but if I do something like ps aux in the terminal the command never completes. Doesn’t respond to Ctrl-C or Ctrl-\ at all.

  • that /path/xx/db.lck is empty ? updating with pacman is always stable in my opinion but with pamac… i dont know…

  • @smstec said in Frozen upgrade:

    I tried to run pacman from the command-line, but the database is locked.

    if pamac fails to fulfill the update database is locked also for pacman…

    so a simple: sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/db.lck will do the trick
