You have a scheduler job that generated an error. When the error occurred, you attempted to disable the job to investigate the error, but received an ORA-27468 error message.
27468, 00000, "\"%s.%s\" is locked by another process"
// *Cause: An attempt was made to read or modify the state of the named
// scheduler object when another process was also updating the same
// object and held the lock.
// *Action: Retry the operation. Scheduler locks are held for a very
// short duration. If the error persists, contact Oracle Support.
Since the documentation for this message said to try again later, you waited, but have continued to receive the same error message.
