AttributeError in final version of Django Authentication (msg) project when I click on username.

When I try to run the final version (downloaded from teacher's notes) of the msg app in Workspaces, I'm getting an AttributeError (Manager isn't available; 'auth.User' has been swapped for 'accounts.User') when I click on someone's username. There's no error in earlier versions of the project. I've googled the error and read through docs but can't figure out a solution. Anyone have an idea of what's going on?
