I am trying to Update Category name in Magento 2.1.1 but its throwing "URL key for specified store already exists.".

This error is appearing in some categories while other categories are working fine.

main.CRITICAL: exception 'Magento\Framework\Exception\AlreadyExistsException' with message 'URL key for specified store already exists.' in D:\xampp\htdocs\m2demo\vendor\magento\module-url-rewrite\Model\Storage\AbstractStorage.php:85

I am just upadating category name.

Let me know if any one can help me.

Thanks for your answer in advance.
