I finished the excersie 5 of the last course. But I cannot nor submit niether save my work. It says autosave failed, and permission denied. What Can I do?
This is a known problem with Coursera’s labs environment.
They’ve been informed, and are working on it.
You can only wait until they fix the issue.
the same problem exists in the “neural networks and deep learning” course in week 4 assignments.
PLEASE FIX THEM SOON
Hi everyone! Sorry for the delay.
Kindly try this:
- From the blank notebook, click
File -> Open.
- Tick the running notebook.
- Rename the old notebook (any filename).
- Rename the duplicate with the original filename (basically, just remove the
- Open this newly renamed notebook.
- You should be able to save this and also see the submit button after a minute.
You “might see an error about checkpoints failing. I think that’s okay because that’s related to the permissions of the hidden
.ipynb_checkpoints folder. That is not needed for grading as far as I know. The changes should persist in the actual notebook itself even if they see that error. I submitted the notebook and got the expected grade.”
the same permission is needed as we try to duplicate the file.
same here. Cannot even open a blank one in the same folder
See the pinned banner at the top of the thread, it contains instructions for a fix.
No, the problem has not been fixed. I have tried getting the latest version of the notebook as the pinned banner suggests. It doesn’t solve the problem.
I have the same problem. Lost my work for a couple times. It always says “Permission Denied”. I cannot create any new file under
release/W2A1. Please fix it!
BTW, did see there was a change today. But “Get Latest Version” doesn’t solve the problem. It still says “Permission Denied”. The files are still 25 days ago.
Coursera is still having an issue. Hopefully they will have a solution soon.
We know there is a problem.
Additional reports are not needed at this time.
Several students facing this issue. We informed the Coursera staff about it and waiting to hear from them. We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience. Please wait for a while.
Meanwhile, you can try this temporary hack but it works for some and didn’t work for others.
I have the same problem with week 3 and 4, what should I do?
worked for me. Thx!!
It works now. Thanks for looking into this.
Though it solves the problem saving the file, it doesn’t solve the submission/grading issue. Whatever I submitted, the score remains to be 0/100.
