I’ve noticed on several different distros that Pamac installer freezes up during the download process. Cancelling the install, going into /var/lib/pacman/ and deleting db.lck can fix the problem, but it usually comes back on the next install. I have a love/hate relationship with yay. But, it’s turning into more love since the Pamac installer problem has come up.
I know I’m not the only one having this problem, as I found the fix using DDG on the first page. Just curious if there’s a permissions or settings issue that might be causing this. Anyone have an idea/answer?
