I have completed the third instruction on #5 cp:
"3.Navigate to the historical/ directory.
List all files and directories in the working directory. You should see a new copy of cleopatra.txt in this directory. "

the copied cleopatra.txt shows up as far as I can tell, but the instruction doesn’t let me move on. What Am I doing wrong???

I just completed the exercise with no issues, so cannot say what the issue may be.

Maybe the interface is looking for you to enter the simpler cd historical command and not the the full path as in cd /home/ccuser/workspace/movies/drama/historical
