I’m a little confused by that error mentioning Mac OSX but using a typical widnows path. What’s more it looks like you’re trying to open a file that starts with an underscore,
_. I think that might be one of the leftover OSX indexing files that shouldn’t really be included in that
.zip file which may then explain invalid start bytes.
Are there other files with a
.ipynb extension within the directory you unpacked?
The two important ones should look like the following (no dots or underscores at the beginning)…
You should start with the “skeleton” one as the solution is the answers which kinda defeats the point .
I can mimic your error by deliberately trying to open the file saved under
__MACOSX/._Reggie_Linear_Regression_Solution.ipynb so it seems like it’s a case of trying to open the wrong file-
__MACOSX/._Reggie_Linear_Regression_Solution.ipynb UnicodeDecodeError('utf-8', ... 'invalid start byte')
