Remove Arch Linux pacman lock

Following is a common situation occurring when you try to stop pacman processes by-force. 
failed to init transaction (unable to lock database)
if you're sure a package manager is not already
running, you can remove /var/lib/pacman/db.lck

A working Solution for this is

rm -r /var/lib/pacman/db.lck
