You should actually add less. In particular, you won't be adding any new empty elements for this challenge.

In each task of this challenge, you will add one or more container elements around code that is already there. For example, in the first task, "the ul, h1 and p elements" being referred to are the ones that follow the <body> tag in the provided code.

But I am on the 4th task "Finally, place the top <ul> inside an element that represents a major section of navigation." I used the nav and /nav so I am trying to understand what I am missing

I can't tell which parts were added during which step, but I can assure you that those empty elements aren't part of the instructions. It's possible that the validator just didn't catch on until this step. When you re-do it and fix that, also double check the instructions and which items are being enclosed.
