Uploading an Alexa Skill to AWS Lambda4:05 with Andrew Chalkley is outdated, can anyone help with correct directions?

Uploading an Alexa Skill to AWS Lambda4:05 with Andrew Chalkley is outdated

Please upload up to date instructions ASAP !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Almost managed to get through this chapter just through my own initiative . Ended up with this "Error: Please select a default endpoint" . This came after creating my lambda function and configuring the skill (in developer portal ), checking the ARN option , selecting North America geographic region and putting in the ARN in the field . Clicked save button and end up with an error :"Error: Please select a default endpoint" . What looked like only 33 mins remaining in the course added an extra 2 hours or so looking for help - documentation , forums etc. Still not fixed the issue . The problem continues to another day...

:bell: Hi, I got alerted by your tag.

But when I took this course that info was still current. I haven't been using the API recently so I'm not familiar with the changes.

If you're reasonably sure the course information is no longer valid, you may want to report it to the Support staff.

Maybe you have figured it out by now, but just in case anyone else has issues, I found this to be a huge help!! it is slightly different from the presentation but this is presentation with this slight update is very applicable.
