Please describe the problem.
Cannot lock files which are not present. This prevents converting v6 files from flat files to symlinks when they are missing. If a file is not present, locking it should either replace it with a broken symlink, or continue on to the next file with a warning.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
I think this happened from unlocking a file in one v6 repo and syncing with a different v6 repo, perhaps via a v5 repo in the middle. In repo #2, the file became unlocked but missing for me.
What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?
6.20160528-g191d2ba on linux
