ADF pipeline errors, Another update is in progress on resource id

A Fisher 1 Reputation point

Since Monday, June 8th, 2020, our pipelines have been failing half of the time due to a new error:

"message":"at Sink '####': Another update is in progress on resource id ####.\r\nActivityId: ####-##-##-##-####, Microsoft.Azure.Documents.Common/2.11.0

I should note, no other changes to our datafactory have taken place, this just started up all of a sudden for all of our datafactories on Monday around 3pm.

The exception message is confusing because the resource id given is a four letter id that I can't tie to any resource, and if it is the sink, there are no settings for or docs in that sink that are being updated in any other way at the time of the pipeline run (which is an hourly simple dataflow with upserts from a source db to a sink db). Does anyone else have this issue or know the cause/solution? I can provide any additional info as needed.
