That will often happen if you introduce a syntax error. The syntax error invalidates the entire script and causes the re-validation of previous tasks to fail.

If you have trouble identifying the cause of an error in a specific case, you can create a question using the "Get Help" button and it will provide a link to the page and insert your formatted code. With that information, someone can give you an accurate answer.
