I wrote a script to update some USB OS's of mine per instance. The idea's that 
multiple instances can be run. The script is located at :
However, I get the following error : 

:: Synchronizing package databases...
error: failed to update core (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update extra (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update community (unable to lock database)
error: failed to synchronize any databases
error: failed to init transaction (unable to lock database)
error: could not lock database: File exists
  if you're sure a package manager is not already
  running, you can remove /var/lib/pacman/db.lck

Those are separate chroot environments so they wouldn't  be sharing
