DBError SqliteFailure

I am trying to sync anki on my new laptop from my old one and I keep getting this error message.
I’ve tried uninstalling, updating, and downloading from ankiweb but I just keep getting this error. (DBError (info “SqliteFailure(Error code: DatabaseCorrupt, entended_code:11), Some (\database disk image is malformed”))

I read somewhere that this could be an issue with having anki open on multiple devices, but this still happened even after ensuring all other accounts were closed.
