Software Centre - Error: Failed to synchronize databases

I am getting this error when I go to the Updates section in the Software Centre.

I’ve run pacman -Syyu in the terminal and that seems to work fine.

I had another issue with the Software Centre a few days ago which I posted and basically worked around by using pacman on the command line (which is fine).

I suspect there’s a lock file lurking somewhere or something similar that I need to clear, from looking around but the solutions all seem to be for people with issues on the command line pacman but that’s working for me. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I manually selected “Refresh databases” in the Software Centre menu and that worked and it’s now OK.

(Kind of obvious really - bit of a facepalm day…)
