On : version, Manage Supplier Negotiations

After setup a Negotiation with any "Allow auto extend" configuration and the negotiation is on going normally with some responses by supplier side, when trying to extend the negotiation by some minutes ahead (editing the close date field and click on submit button), the following message is shown. There is just one user managing the screen beyond the suppliers who are submitting bids on this negotiation.

Sometimes the message shown is changed to “The number must be a positive whole number (PON-2085185)”

The issue happens when an automatic extension was performed at least.

Another person is using the record you are attempting to update. Try again later

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Setup a Negotiation with any "Allow auto extend" configuration.
2) Publish some bid from the invited supplier side.
3) Try to extend by first time
4) Try to extend by many times until the error is shown.
