How to solve OdbError in Abaqus Python script?

How to solve OdbError in Abaqus Python script?

I am running a 3D solid model in Abaqus Python script, which is supposed to be analyzed for 200 times as the model has been arranged in a for loop (for i in range(0,199):). Sometimes, I receive the following error and then the analysis terminates. I can't realize the reason.
"odberrror: the .lck file for the output database D:/abaqus/Model/Job-1.odb indicates that the analysis Input File Processor is currently modifying the database. The database cannot be opened at this time."
It is noted that all the variables including "Odb_0" and .... are deleted at the end of each step of the loop prior to starting the further one. I would be grateful if anyone could kindly advise.

Maybe your script tries to do something before the previous process is completely finished and the files (.lck) are deleted.

Consider adding a sleep-command at certain stages and catch issue with try-except.
