How to unlock a stuck state lock (or delete the lockfile)

Hi, I’ve been using Okteto for a few weeks now and it has been great, but recently something went wrong (I’m not sure exactly how it happened but I think I destroyed a build that was in progress) and now I cannot launch my dev environment because terraform gets stuck on this state lock. If I had access to the terraform instance, I’d just force-unlock the offending lock ID, but I don’t know how to do that.

Acquiring state lock. This may take a few moments...! ╷

 Terraform acquires a state lock to protect the state from being written
 by multiple users at the same time. Please resolve the issue above and try
 again. For most commands, you can disable locking with the "-lock=false"
 flag, but this is not recommended.! ╵error executing command '~/tfenv/bin/terraform apply -auto-approve -var="create_namespace=false" -var="namespace=${OKTETO_NAMESPACE}"': exit status 1exit status 1

I found where the .tflock file was being stored (in a gcp bucket) and deleted it, which fixed my issue.

A nuclear option likely would have also just been to make a new namespace and delete the old one.
