Icy is not opening on Mac OS Big Sur due to blocked update


I updated my Icy application to the latest version, and now I am getting an error at the time of opening it.
My Mac OS is Big Sur 11.2.3 (20D91) and running Java 8 update 281.
The error is:

File /private/var/folders/lc/tbblv6l95sz47jzgk5nkbjyc0000gn/T/AppTranslocation/1DB2CCE1-3BE6-45D3-A35C-691A333CFEFF/d/icy.app/icy.jar is locked, aborting update…

Any help would be appreciated.


It’s weird that it says the icy.jar file is locked. As if a background process was locking it (updater which didn’t properly exited ?). Did you try to reboot your system to see if the error message still appear then ?
