Hello All
I having an issue with local-lvm having a question mark and these links and commands are not working for me

in this Thread this command lvconvert --repair pve/data locks up and doesn't finish
this one adding the thin_check_option doesn't change anything
this thread leads me to the this command with this error
lvchange -an pve/data_tmeta
device-mapper: remove ioctl on (253:2) failed: Device or resource busy
Unable to deactivate pve-data_tmeta (253:2)

here is what lsblk shows
sda 8:0 0 5.5T 0 disk
├─sda1 8:1 0 1007K 0 part
├─sda2 8:2 0 512M 0 part /boot/efi
└─sda3 8:3 0 5.5T 0 part

├─pve-data_tmeta 253:2 0 15.8G 0 lvm
└─pve-data_tdata 253:3 0 5.3T 0 lvm

here is what df -h shows

tmpfs 38G 0 38G 0% /run/user/0

I am by far not an expert and I'm pretty sure I maybe the one doing something wrong so some steps to correct his would be great.
and I thank you anyone in advance for the help
