Yes, get back operation not found. I see in the questions from 12-17 another user experienced inconsistencies accessing jshell. His question went unanswered. How would this affect moving forward with the techdegree for Java Script?

jshell is used for Java rather than JavaScript.

You could ignore jshell entirely and compile and run your Java code without using it. If being unable to import files is the only issue that you are having with jshell, you could try copying and pasting the code from your files directly into jshell.
