Modifying the Filesystem in The Command Line Mission

Unexpected response from The Modifying Filesystem mission as described below:

/home/dq$ ls
augustus brats prize_winners tv veruca violet
/home/dq$ cd /home/
/home$ ls
dq
/home$
/home/dq$ ls
augustus brats prize_winners tv veruca violet
/home/dq$ cd /home/
/home$ ls
dq
/home$
/home$ cd /home/learn/
bash: cd: /home/learn/: No such file or directory
/home$

What I expected to happen: directory to be changed to "learn"

What actually happened: apparent non-existent of the “learn” directory

Hi @KolaT : I think /home/learn is just an example of a directory which they use to introduce the concepts of directories and file structure. I mentioned it in this topic. In future please also remember to format your code and provide a question link according to these guidelines. Please also select the appropriate tags (python, R, SQL, CLI etc. and the mission step-- 385-1 in this case) so that us volunteers can better assist you.

@Sahil is dataquest going to do something about this mission?

Hello @KolaT, /home/learn/ is used only for teaching purposes and therefore is not precreated in the command line, if you want to interact with the command line do as instructed by the Instructions section.

Yes, this has already been logged. Perhaps we just need to mention that it is an example.

Best,
