I recently installed Org 9.0 and ‘org-ctrl-c-ctrl-c’ often complains about user-error: ‘C-c C-c’ can do nothing useful here. However when I use it repeatedly it works suddenly, although I didn't change anything ?

    I have found in code blocks if you are on a blank line I get that error. I haven't had time to track it down or check if it is fixed. Nov 12 '16 at 13:04
  • I agree. I have been having the same issue for a while. My current solution is to move to lines that have source code.

Remove the org and org-plus-contrib packages and reinstall to fix this problem.


@John Kitchin thanks. I will use this temporary fix.
