Solution Verified - Updated -


  • I built my .NET Core application as a container image and running it in OpenShift gives me an error message: "
    • /usr/lib64/dotnet/sdk/3.1.104/NuGet.targets(528,5): error : Unable to obtain lock file access on '/tmp/NuGetScratch/lock/abcdef' for operations on '../.nuget/NuGet/NuGet.Config'."
