Why You getting Another Update currently in Progress error

One of the common reason of getting this error which is you tried to update it or at same time another users trying to do the same the however in most of the case you are only who maintain your WordPress updates so far this also happened with me due in my WordPress database there is core_updater.lock is added my database

Core.updater.lock usually prevent any updates unless the core update is done properly so there is no need to do anything until it update the core files but some times it won’t fixed automatically you need to done yourself
