(solved) Update Manager

PostPosted by Sedate Sedition » Fri May 26, 2017 1:48 am

Yesterday when I logged on Update Manager came up with many updates which I applied. Today when I logged on the Update Manager didn't show up and when I went to System Settings and tried to run the Pamac Package Updater I get "Waiting for another package manager to quit" and it does nothing. I reboot and still the same thing. I don't want to try anything afraid I might make things worse. I'm running OS: ArchLabs v4 .0.0 - Kernel 4.9.29-1-lts.

in the meantime it is gone here.
possibly an update problem from the arch distro

I removed the db.lck and tried sudo pacman-Syu again and I was all okay.

Went into File System as root, var/lib/pacman and deleted db.lck. I didn't get a chance to run "sudo pacman -Syu" because the Update Manager popped up with 11 updates. I applied updates and rebooted but db.lck was back creating the same problem. Had to do the same thing and Update Manager showed up. I can live with this solution until a better one is found. Thank you

I had the same thing. Rebooted and choose to start in safe mode and the thingmajig worked as it is supposed to do. My solution is to turn the auto funcion off, and do it in the terminal. I always do it in the terminal anyway so... :)

Arch is better off updated via the terminal imo. Bit buggy for some in gui update managers like pamac or octopi.

@Nightowl: I agree, I only use the terminal for updating and installing. No GUI's over here for that.
