etc...

Anyone know how to deal with this?
Because of this everytime I update my machine, when it doing this the "rm: cannot remove" it use all my CPU power.

What happens if you try to delete these timeshaft backup's by yourself...does it work?

Also trying running sudo pacman -Syu instead of pacman -Syu
I'm not sure if that's the update command, because I always use paru.

This pop up when I try to delete it manually
"Could not delete file /run/timeshift/backup/timeshift-btrfs/snapshots/2021-09-06_16-00-02/@/var/lock."

Okay. I will try with sudo pacman -Syu

Take also a look at this one, still not marked as solved, but I think the solution worked.

PS: Would you mind updating the title of your thread, to keep some order in the forum for those who may have the same problem...? :slight_smile:
