I am on a large file in excel with over 100000 words.
Suddenly I receive the above message of TM update failed and I get no more hints from the TM, neither can I use Ctrl Alt Enter to go to the next line.

Apart from that I get an error like:
Object reference is not set to an example of an object.

Can anyone explain what happened here?
Many thanks
