That you means another package manager has something locked. Is it still installed now, share the output of the following.
Code:
pacman -Qs slack
Raman, when are you going to learn these basic things yourself. You have been using GNU/Linux for over a year now these are basic things you should be able to do yourself now, it's basic package management.

Seems some other package manager is locking something for you, try the following.
Code:
sudo pacman -R slack

thank you for help.
actually i am busy doing my M.Sc. physics so i have less time to go deeper in Linux.
After a year of using Linux, installing and removing packages you should at least have a basic understanding of what to do now just from that experience ;)
