:: Pacman is currently in use, please wait

I wonder if this is a bug or if Pacman is using the internet without permission. This occurred directly after I rebooted the PC.

You have probably already somewhere a pacman instance running.

is pacu a alias for pacman? if not, it isn’t pacman, and i would try pacman instead pacu.

Sometimes the pacman lock file stays around if pacman was aborted. Was something interrupting the last pacman (or paru) run?

If you’re sure that pacman isn’t running then check if /var/lib/pacman/db.lck exist and remove it.
