Have a look into the file, especially the date and time. Is it (very)

There might have been an older operation that did not correctly finish,
and the lock file has been left over. In this case, the lock file would
be rather old. I would consider removing it by hand, then.

If it is not old, then something else is going on, and I would refrain
from removing it.
