Welcome to the Get Help category!
Hello everyone.
Please can someone help me? I am learning the command line an I got stuck in Artusi exercise. Here is my code for step 19: “mv airdry.txt …/ceramic/”. It is supposed to move airdry.txt into the ceramic directory but is keeps displaying this message every time I click enter: “mv airdry.txt …/ceramic/”.Here is a link to the exercise: https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-the-command-line/projects/artusi

Going forward, if you have a screenshot of the task (including your input & the error message) that would be helpful too.

That said,
Looking at the text you pasted,

mv airdry.txt …/ceramic/
you used three periods ".../ceramic " instead of two: "../ ceramic/"

one ‘.’ is the current working dir, two periods is the parent directory.

Should be:

mv airdry.txt ../ceramic/

cd ../ceramic
$ ls
airdry.txt  earthenware.txt  stoneware.txt
