A mapset is locked by creating a ".gislock" file in the mapset
directory (note the leading "."). But the error which you report
doesn't sound like a locked mapset.

It would help if you specified the exact command which you run and the
exact error message (copied and pasted, not re-typed) which it

Are you sure that the directory is actually a mapset, i.e. does it
contain the WIND and VAR files? Do these files have the correct
ownership and permissions?
