Could not run editor content in a new process

VScode suddenly stopped running code using ctrl+F5
the usual graph appears but nothing happens:
vscode-run-not working
then after I forcefully stop it, i get:
vscode-notrunning2
I still can run the code using “Julia:Execute active File in REPL”
vscode-notrunning

thank you for your help.

See

and

for the fix, which will be in the next release.

sudo apt-get --purge remove code
sudo dpkg -i …(earlier version)
settings: update:mode = none
everything works as usual.
thanks
