%cpaste magic doesn't take Ctrl+V

Just tried to use the %cpaste magic. I saw the video posted on the other post, but my shell behaves very differently…
When I use Ctrl+A followed by Ctrl+V, I get the following: “^A^V” (enter gives a syntax error). If I don’t wait for this text output and just tap ctrl+A and ctrl+V very rapidly one after the other, I get a keyboard interrupt error.
What am I missing?

Hi @amit.steiner:

Welcome to the community! Please attach the mission link and the commands you entered before doing Ctrl+A and Ctrl+V as per these guidelines so we know the particular mission you are referring to. Thanks!
