I can't make a change on Alexa custom skill. An error occurs by adding item on definition.json .

Here is error message. The remote endpoint could not be called, or the response it returned was invalid.

The issue is most likely in how you re-zipped the files. Index.js actually needs to be at the root of your package, so instead of zipping dictionary-skill and uploading that, you need to select the files in inside of that directory to zip.

that worked, thank you!

Can I please ask for a more specific set of zip instructions? I tried several approaches but I am still getting the same error. Thank you!
