What is the URL of the page with the issue?

What is your user agent?

Firefox 94.0 (64-bit)


The fail function (below the marked comment), expects 2 return values. However, the function only returns fmt.Errorf(...).


What did you do?

I copy-pasted the code to my IDE (VS Code) and got an error (the return line was marked with a red line).

What did you expect to see?

There should be no error in the copy-pasted function. It should return, maybe, 0, fmt.Errorf(...)?

What did you see instead?

Error during compilation.

./main.go:229:3: not enough arguments to return
	have (error)
	want (int64, error)

I'm new to Go, so please let me know if I did something wrong instead. Thanks!
