The following happened in the early morning today (before I tried manual upgrade):
This is from /var/log/unattended-upgrades/unattended-upgrades.log

The “ERROR Lock file is already taken” appears only once in the log file, so this is new. I did not try anything new yesterday (besides looking into cockpit). Apparently, the tor package was upgraded.
I just tried the manual update in the web interface, the same packages are still upgradable, cockpit now says that freedombox-manual-upgrade.service failed to start.
I could try the command line update but I am a bit worried by the “Lock file is already taken”.
