Likely to be screw-in I think.
Right hand thread so anti clockwise to undo.

If the cistern lid won't lift up, likely is the lid is screwed down.

Push down and hold one of the flush buttons. You will see a slight recess in the side of the other button that is now exposed. Insert a screwdriver tip and gently lever the button up. Repeat for the first button. You should now see a white plastic screw that when undone allows the cover to be removed.

Bye

The point is the screw is hidden underneath the push buttons. The buttons have to be gently levered out to gain access.
