Hello @Nitin_Joshi10!

Several learners facing this issue. We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience but request you to wait for a while. We informed the course staff to look into the issue as soon as possible.

Your patience will be highly appreciated. Once they resolve the issue, we will inform you.

Hi everyone! Sorry for the delay.

Kindly try this:

  1. From the blank notebook, click File -> Open.
  2. Tick the running notebook.
  3. Click Shutdown then Duplicate.
  4. Rename the old notebook (any filename).
  5. Rename the duplicate with the original filename (basically, just remove the -Copy1 string).
  6. Open this newly renamed notebook.
  7. 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.”



just for your information, this issue was found with all assignments, good luck solving it soon

Thank you @kareem_nada for confirming! Cousera is looking into the problem now.

HI @Nitin_Joshi10, please try these steps instead.
