Query on loganalytics.io not working

As a beginner I'm looking for sample queries to understand how to create my own queries in Log Analytics. I came across the sample below and it seems to do what I need. However the query fails when run with error: 

"No query statement found"


Any thoughts on why this unmodified sample doesn't work (anymore)?

let ComputersMissingUpdates3DaysAgo = Update
| where TimeGenerated between (ago(3d)..ago(2d))
| where  Classification == "Critical Updates" and UpdateState != "Not needed" and UpdateState != "NotNeeded"
| summarize makeset(Computer);
| where TimeGenerated > ago(1d)
| where  Classification == "Critical Updates" and UpdateState != "Not needed" and UpdateState != "NotNeeded"
| where Computer in (ComputersMissingUpdates3DaysAgo)
| summarize UniqueUpdatesCount = dcount(Product) by Computer, OSType

Hi Don,

That error means the query was not "found" when you clicked the "Run" button, and that's usually because the cursor was on an empty line. Try placing the query editor's cursor anywhere on the query text itself, and then click "Run".

On another note, we have many examples you can use:

1. On our examples GitHub repo

2. Now available "Select queries" on the Azure Log Analytics "Logs" page (also available through Help->Examples)





Unless I remove the empty line before Update, or ctrl-a to select all it doesn't work when placing the cursor at the start of the query, but then it works. Thx.
