After you do this, Visual Studio re-authenticated your login to Visual Studio Team Services and you will be allowed to check in your code again from then on. I’m not totally sure why this issue presented itself. The only thing I did was refresh my account login in Visual Studio 2015. After that I was still able to check in code, and this problem surfaced several days later, so I can’t for certain say that it was the cause.

Nevertheless, try this quick fix first to see if it resolves your problem. If not, well then continue researching what worked for other developers. If your resolution to this issue is different, feel free to share in the comments below.
