Using the file:// method to access a repository only works if the
underlying file system/drivers provide certain locking functions. Seems
your USB memory stick doesn't provide those (that's also the reason why
you should not access a repository via file:// on a network share).

Sorry, but there's no solution or workaround.

You could try updating the drivers or the firmware for your USB drive.
Maybe that helps, but I doubt it.
