• Need help to fix db.lck issues...

    Hi all,

    This issue has been ongoing for a while and I can’t seem to find a permanent fix.
    I can temporarily fix it for the active session by removing the lock file, but whenever I reboot (usually not the next time but the time after) I have to manually remove the lock in order to update.

    How can I make this more of a permanent solution rather than by manual intervention?

    Thanks in advance.

      if you're sure a package manager is not already
      running, you can remove /var/lib/pacman/db.lck

  • $ sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/db.lck
  • But db is blocked mostly because of another updateprogram is running e.t.c. some user also mark this to pamac, and if so next update of pamac should fix this:

  • The new Pamac 4.3.6 should fix the bug


    I made that thread 👍

  • @Caiosama205 Ues the new update seemed to fix the prob. Thanks to all!
