Zygote.gradient(): Mutating arrays is not supported

When I do a gradient calculation with Zygote, it throw an error: Mutating arrays is not supported. I don’t know why it went wrong, how should I correct it, or how should I debug it so that I would know where it went wrong.

Probably, you try to differentiate through some code that contains something like x[i] = y.
This is not supported by Zygote. I used this work-around at some point.
