'Create File' fails due to no check out of a file that does not exist yet?

I am receiving an error in a flow on the action to Create File.

When the flow goes to create the file the flow fails with this message.  This is odd because the file can not be check out if the file doesn't currently exist. 

 

Any help is appreciated! 🙂

 

"status": 423,

"message": "The file \"https://tenant.sharepoint.com/documentctrl/DocumentControlLibrary/11149.docx\" is not checked out. You must first check out this document before making changes.

Have you tried a different file name? Have you also gone into the document library settings and looked at all files uploaded and checked out by other users? 

 

i.e.  Manage files which have no checked in version

Re: 'Create File' fails due to no check out of a file that does not exist yet?

looked at the flow run history and it looks like it previously failed after creating the file. I was able to fix this issue (in case it happens again) by adding 2 actions to find a file and check it out. But since this is not common and will only run if there was a previous failure due to time out - I added the run after if failed/etc.
