I already refreshed the ‘project frame’ and the ‘project’s missing files’ but get the same error. This project was working fine yesterday, but after reopening the dataquest website and the notebook (running from within dataquest, not on my computer) today I’m getting this error. I have searched the forums and found no relevant answers. I feel like I must be missing something small here…thanks


Did you rerun your whole project? After the kernel dies, it won’t remember anything that was done before and you need to rerun it.

Hi Bruno. That did it, thanks!

I went to Kernel > Restart and Run All and everything works as expected now.


I got the same problem, but nothing helps.
restart or restart and run all , nothing helps. I got stuck
Can you please help ?

Hi @hristofor.angelov and welcome to the community!

Sounds like you’re having a different problem than the original poster. Please create a new post and include any error messages you might be getting along with your code and link to the mission you’re working on.
