I suggest to reload the standby and try again and let us know. ( make sure you do this in maintenance window).

Most of the time always suggest using for Primary Active ASA for performing all tasks. and change configs

 

If you like to check below suggest methods :

 

 

check any active sessions :

 

show ssh sessions ( delete any ssh session active , other than yours)

 

If you are using asdm try 

 

show asdm session

asdm disconnect  - select session to disconnect and try

tried both but there are no active sessions showing... if failover occurs in this state will it be successful ? does the message " The flash device is in use by another task" affects failover in any way ?
