Fedora 31 : Can be better? part 004.

Another issue on Fedora can be linked to the management of transactions to avoid transaction lock. Let's see how can be fixed:
[root@desk mythcat]# rpm --rebuilddb
warning: waiting for transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock
^C
[root@desk mythcat]# rm /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock
rm: remove regular empty file '/var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock'? y
[root@desk mythcat]# rpm --rebuilddb
...
[root@desk mythcat]# dnf clean all
...
Waiting for process with pid 2128 to finish.
^CKeyboardInterrupt: Terminated.
[root@desk mythcat]# kill  -9 2128
[root@desk mythcat]# dnf clean all
