For some reason I cannot save files while in org-mode. This happened after I updated to a most recent version of org-mode. If I change to text mode I can save without a problem. I have tried C-x C-w to write it to the same file and it hangs endlessly as well. Other modes (tex, python) seem to save without problems. This is the only vaguely related post. Is there any way to debug the problem? Thanks.

My Org-mode version is 9.2 and emacs is 25.2.2.

Today I did another upgrade of org-mode and now it works. Must have been a local bug. Thanks for your help @choroba
