In Julia Turing: getting AssertionError: model isa Model

Hi All,
I am executing below code mentioned in the Turing.jl Guide. This code can be used to calculate likelihood for the Turing model. However I am getting below mentioned error. Please let me know what I may be doing wrong. Thanks for all the help!

Code for model:

using Turing
@model function gdemo(x, y)
s² ~ InverseGamma(2, 3)
m ~ Normal(0, sqrt(s²))
x ~ Normal(m, sqrt(s²))
y ~ Normal(m, sqrt(s²))
end

Code to get likelihood

prob"x = 1.0, y = 1.0 | model = gdemo, s = 1.0, m = 1.0"

Error that I am getting:

AssertionError: model isa Model

Stacktrace:

See Prob macro while following Guide documentation throws "AssertionError: model isa Model" · Issue #182 · TuringLang/DynamicPPL.jl · GitHub

Though I am not sure how one should provide the observations — as part of the model or in the string macro? So the following works for me:

using Turing
@model function gdemo(x, y)
	s² ~ InverseGamma(2, 3)
	m ~ Normal(0, sqrt(s²))
	x ~ Normal(m, sqrt(s²))
	y ~ Normal(m, sqrt(s²))
end

model = gdemo(missing, missing)
prob"x = 3.0, y = 3.0 | model = model, s = 1.0, m = 1.0"

This worked for me too. Thanks for the help!
