What does 'unfortunately' mean here?

I asked my friend about if they wanted to meet up one time in the next few weeks.

They got back and said 'Yeah that sounds great! - unfortunately I am quite busy until the end of the month - would that work for you?'

What does 'unfortunately' mean here? Is this something you would say to someone you care about/a friend?

    Your friend wanted to meet up with you but because of prior arrangements your friend will be too busy until the end of the month if that's alright with you.

    It means the same thing it has the other 40 times you asked this question.

    Unfortunately means "regrettably" Seriously, this is the best "troll" you have?

    It means that at the moment he/she can't make a plan, but after the end of the month looks good. "Unfortunately" means unluckily - it's bad timing.

    They have made a reasonable excuse not to meet up with you soon. In other words it's not their highest priority. You still have work to do with any relationship here.

    It means the same as it does anywhere else.
