Issue #9003 resolved

Can't edit/remove a file on line

Debora Nozza
created an issue

If I try to edit/delete/rename a file online with the add-on buttons, Bitbucket answers "We had trouble committing your changes" and obviously doesn't complete the action. This error happens only with one repository and not with my other repositories!

    Debora Nozza,

    This generally occurs if the head of the branch you are editing on moves while you are editing the file. Do you have an example of a repository this happens on? I'd be happy to take a look and see if I can't figure out what's going on.

    Trying to do it via CLI gives this error which might be instructive:

    fatal: Unable to create '/data/c01/n02/p/vp0035/data/d-44/r-3476044/refs/heads/RMC_MOODLE_23.lock': File exists.

    This doesn't look like a lock file at my end that I can clear?
