I am trying to update a list item from a list with a single column 'Test' and I'm getting the following error:

Request failed. This task is currently locked by a running workflow and cannot be edited

flush: function (successCallback, failCallback) {
  var self = this, clientContext, oList;

  var id = self._userSPListItem.GetId();

  SP.SOD.executeFunc('sp.js', 'SP.ClientContext', function () {
    clientContext = new SP.ClientContext(_spPageContextInfo.siteAbsoluteUrl);
    oList = clientContext.get_web().get_lists().getByTitle('MyList');

    var oListItem = oList.getItemById(id);

    oListItem.set_item('MyField', 'Test');


    clientContext.executeQueryAsync(Function.createDelegate(this, successCallback), Function.createDelegate(this, failCallback));
