I just saw this:

allan at mugen ~
 > sudo mv /var/lib/pacman/sync/allanbrokeit.db{,.bak}

allan at mugen ~
 > pacman -Su | wc -l
Proceed with installation? [Y/n] n

That is a lot of copies of:
error: could not open file /var/lib/pacman/sync/allanbrokeit.db: Failed 
to open '/var/lib/pacman/sync/allanbrokeit.db'
