Manjaro 20 Gnome Update Manager Stuck or Broken [SOLVED]

Hi:

I did a fresh installation of Manjaro 20 Gnome on my desktop about 3 and 1/2 hours ago.
After the first boot I started up the update manager (783 pkg's) and after waiting an hour I cancelled the update.
The update is 1.4 Gig's.

Than after canceling the update I rebooted and started the update manager again.
The line at the bottom of the update manager hasn't moved in almost 4 hours.
It looks like it's either stuck or broken.

Here's some screenshot's to show you what's going on.
Any ideas on what to do?

Performed a fresh install to see if it would help.
This time the update manager started working and than go stuck again 1/2 way.

Tried updating using the commandline and that returned errors-

Synchronizing package databases...
error: failed to update core (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update extra (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update community (unable to lock database)
error: failed to update multilib (unable to lock database)
error: failed to synchronize all databases

I'm off to do some searching--

Good News!

Running these 2 commands in the console fixed the problem. (whatever that was)

sudo rm /var/lib/pacman/db.1ck

Than to update the system:
sudo pacman -Syu

All 783 pkg's were downloaded and updated.-:)

The system looks and feels GREAT!

Last time I installed Manjaro 20 on this gaming Asus Tuf Gaming rig it wouldn't boot.
That install I installed Manjaro to my 500 G WD HDD and Mint had the boot to the nvme.
The only way I was able to get it to boot was to keep editing the kernel line.

This time I installed Manjaro to the nvme drive and it booted w/o any issues.

Glad I didn't give up so soon.:D
Some things are worth fighting for--
