With so little info, no idea.  Try:

- interrupting the kernel and see if the traceback is any useful.
- see if after the interruption, a simple '1+1' cell executes OK or  not.
- restart the kernel and rerun it to the same point (and possibly
restart your cluster, since those are parallel examples that assume a
working cluster).

If none of the above work, let us know which cell it is by pasting its
code here so we can identify it and reproduce the problem.
