This error usually occurs when the WordPress core update is running in the background and when the user tries to perform a second update.

During a Core update, WordPress automatically sets the core_update.lock option in your WordPress database. Which stops the process of updating your site simultaneously. That is, you can do only one update at a time. And when we try to do two updates simultaneously, then “Another Update in Process” error appears.

This error is automatically fixed after some time. However, if it doesn't fix or don't want to wait, you can fix it manually by resetting it.
