There is a bug in MV Q4. The txt files were in the wrong place. One was already in superhero. I moved it out and then moved back in with the other requested txt but I still cannot progress. My learning is stalled please resolve urgently. I have filed a bug last night but I have no response yet.

I resolved this issue by realising that the course was expecting me to enter commands when in action as the PWD.

I’m stuck on this too. What was the exact command or list of commands you used to bipass this?

This is borked just like the last lesson, wonderwoman.txt is outside directory superhero and batman.txt is already within, i’ve moved Batman.txt out then moved them back in, moved just wonderwoman, moved them both in then out, erased them both then created new files in action/ then moved them back in and it all fails

The first step using pwd also fails because they want you to check your directory and execute an argument based on the information but running pwd fails as two steps are not completed as one

report the bug under ‘get unstuck’ in the upper right

Yep I thought the same thing because in the filesystem layout sheet they provided it shows that Batman.txt is within the superhero folder. But if you $ pwd you should find yourself in the Action folder. From there $ ls and you should get ‘batman.txt matrix-reloaded.txt matrix-revolutions.txt matrix.txt scifi superhero wonderwoman.txt’. This shows that the batman file is outside of the superhero folder. I believe that the filesystem layout sheet is incorrect.
