Thanks to lfam on #borgbackup

You need to make sure there are no other backups running, and then use borg break-lock as described in the manual: https://borgbackup.readthedocs.org/en/latest/internals.html?highlight=break-lock#lock-files

You should check ps aux or just restart to ensure borg is not still running
