Update file properties in SharePoint


I have a flow that is triggered when a file is modified and then I have to Update file properties. So sometimes this works and other times it doesn't



The update fails with 

  "message""The file.docx has been modified by on 26 Jul 2022 15:47:35 -0700.\r\nclientRequestId:\r\nserviceRequestId: "
I can assume that it fails because I have two updates in a very short time but it is successful sometimes so please can you help. An option to introduce a delay its not an option because I have specific trigger and if someone modifies the document while in delay flow will trigger again. So basically I have Yes/no column and is triggered if the column is Yes and I have to set it to No to not trigger. So yes this is what I am doing and sometime is goes trough and other times not. Frustrating.
