Error in Facebook Adset

Solved

Hello, I'm reaching out to you to ask about the problem I encountered with Facebook Ads Manager. I hope that you can help. 
 
Today, I wanted to set the Ad Campaign and Ad Set on Facebook. I wanted to set all e-packet countries for targeting option, so I chose Add Locatios By Bulk, and added the e-packet countries I wanted to target. Facebook then recognized the countries I selected as it showed the Match Locations option, where I could confirm whether the countries I added were on their list. 
 
But, then an error message occurred. As you can see in the attached screenshot, on the right side, there was this notification saying 
Fix 1 Error in 1 Ad Set. Invalid Targeting Spec: The specified targeting spec is not valid because: The field id is not a valid target spec field (#1487079).
 
I tried to browse looking for what this means, but couldn't find anything to resolve this issue. 
Have you ever had similar experience like this? I would really appreciate any useful advice. 
 
Thank you!

You can find a discuss about that error. It's Facebook's bug!

I have been having the same problem since this morning. Apparently is a Facebook bug, but not very sure about that. Here some people have shared some ways to fix the problem (it hasn't worked for me), so you can try and see if it works for you! https://www.reddit.com/r/PPC/comments/dgc9go/has_anyone_ever_received_this_targeting_error_on/

Hi, thanks for your reply. Yes, I also saw the link while I was trying to google this issue, but I haven't been able to open this link. It always asked me to reload, and I found it so frustrating :(.
If you can still open the link, can you copy and paste any info on ways to fix it here? I would really appreciate it.

This is an accepted solution.

In my case I just Reload the page and started over and then it works!

Thank you for your response. It is indeed a bug.

What I did last night since I couldn't resolve it, I just turned off my laptop, stopped working and tried whatever I could to switch my mind. 
This morning, I opened my Ads Manager and tried to create the same Adset again...and everything turned out OK!
I guess Facebook Bug is something that would eventually recover itself after a while?
