'Save' doesn't work


for some reason, after editing a file, I tried to save with both ctrl-s and ‘File->Save’ and it doesn’t work- it keeps the little blue circle next to the file name and the file doesn’t actually change. no error box comes up. I tried to update atom, it worked for few minutes, then it went back to not working.
the file is not write-protected or anything.

I’m using the linux build, running on Ubuntu.


A similar issue came up recently:

Did you run Atom with sudo at any point?
