How to resolve "another git process seems to be running" error

The, “another git process seems to be running” error occurs when you open multiple Terminals to use git. However, do not worry, there is an easy fix for this:

Save your data and run the following on the terming:

rm -f .git/index.lock

This will delete the index.lock file that stores all the locks placed to stop other files from making changes.

Deleting this file releases the locks so that other files can make such changes.

If there is no index.lock file, delete the HEAD.lock file by typing:

rm -f .git/HEAD.lock

This should delete the HEAD.lock file and release the lock so that the file can be committed.
