Documents locked when editing a document you opened

I’ve come across a problem that SharePoint has. When you check out and edit a document, when you get to the check in stage, an error prompts you that “the filename” is locked for editing by another user.

According to KB8997089, the fix is to wait 10 minutes and to edit the file using the “Edit document”. This issue is either caused by the MSOCache folder or the client Office lock out. See Paul Liebrand’s blog for more details.
