Error on document checkin

I'm running a Nintex workflows 2013 workflow on a pages library. After a check in process the workflow calculates some things and is supposed to update the element again.

I have workflow actions to check the item out, update a field (single line of text) and check in the page afterwards.

 

If I run the action in 80% of my test runs I get the following error:

The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information.

 

However, if I put a "Wait for 1 minute" action before the check in action, the workflow always runs fine.

 

I can only assume that the workflow wants to check in the document too early and not waits until the database was updated with my field value. As I don't want to spread waiting actions I wonder if there is any way to wait for the DB-operation to commit before checking in the document.
