That's an annoying one. I'd recommend checking Google, but as I recall, it means that the OS user ID that's being used to do the update doesn't have filesystem (write) access privileges for the lockfile.

Part of what makes it so challenging is determining what the actual system userid being used is, since the type of account access you're employing will affect it - you can have a CVS user ID that doesn't correspond to an OS user ID.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
