Pamac warning on update

I had a failed update earlier due to a mirror issue which was sorted with pacman-mirrors -f

However I now get this warning if attempting to apply the update:

unable to lock database
Failed to synchronize databases

what did I break?

I think you’ll find the answer here:

pacman -Syyu pushed through it before I saw this… wish I could wait 5 seconds so I could have read this first. We will see!

Marked as solution either way as that’s definitely what you want to look for first.

Edit: It seems the root cause of this was not the presence of the lockfile but pamac was unable to create the lockfile. Either way, pacman did not have this problem so I no longer have this issue.
