The terminal returns an error during compiling – even though Codecademy counts it as correct. Could you tell me what’s wrong?

import java.util.Scanner;

public class Introduction {
  public static void main( String[] args ) {
   Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
   System.out.println("What is your name?");
   String userName = input.next();
   System.out.printf("Hello %s! It's nice to meet you.", userName);

The funny thing is it starts to work after refreshing the page. I can’t paste the error message here for some reason
