run these:
sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/db.lck
Update the system:
sudo pacman -Syyu


alrighty. ill update you soon

I ran those commands and everything executed well. i then ran the previous command and it executed. Add/Remove Software has good download speeds now too. thank you for your help. have a good day
