Copy Item Action not Overwriting Library Document


I am trying to use the "Copy Item" in a Nintex workflow. The workflow is supposed to copy a document from one library to another library and if the document has the same name overwrite the existing item as a new version. Even though the "Overwrite an existing item" check box is checked it does not overwrite the document. Instead I have 2 documents in a library with the same name. Which I find odd because SharePoint will not create two documents with the same name when you manually upload a document to a library, though at times I wish it would but in this case I do not. I am using SharePoint 2016.

Thanks in advanced.
