Did you try doing another pacman operation that locks the DB right
after? That would have likely failed too. If you read the message, it
indicates that the lock file exists, which happens if pacman is
running an operation that requires a locked DB. Try following the
instructions given- if you are sure pacman is not running, remove the
lock file. If you can duplicate this bug after trying that, be sure to
give the exact steps leading up to it.
