Today I emerge --sync'd and when it had nearly finished updating the metadata part (I last saw it on 79%) it stopped with the error

Code:
Performing Global Updates: /usr/portage/profiles/updates/2Q-2006
(Could take a couple of minutes if you have a lot of binary packages.)
  .='update pass'  *='binary update'  @='/var/db move'
  s='/var/db SLOT move' S='binary SLOT move' p='update /etc/portage/package.*'
........................................

OSError: [Errno 16] Device or resource busy


I now cannot emerge anything, I tried using the portage recovery tarball from the wiki page and that gives a similar error when emerging anything. For now the system seems stable, and there is nothing in dmesg. No partitions are out of space so I'm out of ideas.

Can anyone help?

Moved from Portage & Programming to Duplicate Threads, please see this sticky topic: portage fails - errno 16 Device or resource busy.
