dbt deps issue in new initialized vscode env

Initialized dbt in vscode for the first time after testing my bigquery adapter connection. But when I run dbt deps or dbt --no-version-check deps code, I get the following error

PermissionError: [WinError 32] The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process: ‘dbt_packages\dbt_metrics-1.3.2\integration_tests’

Unable to delete the packages folders as suggested by chatgpt. Tried dbt clean command as well. Nothing works.

Try manually deleting the dbt_packages folder, quitting VSCode, and then open a separate command line application like GitBash (anything but VSCode), navigate to the root of your dbt project, and run dbt deps. Then re-open the dbt project in VSCode.

Thank you. I tried with Process Explorer and that sorted the issue. But getting a different error now.

Encountered an error:
Parsing Error

I havent changed anything
