Bench update gives an error

Hello, running bench update today gave me an error.

Already up-to-date.
error: cannot open .git/FETCH_HEAD: Permission denied

Error: None
Traceback (most recent call last):

I have checked the .git folder permission and everything seems to be ok. What should I do?

sudo chown fozilex:fozilex -R /home/fozilex/frappe-bench/apps and try again.
