Greetings nt31921a,

You should have ran blockMesh from inside the folder "tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity/" and not "tutorials/incompressible/icoFoam/cavity/constant/polyMesh/".

The user guide just points out where the blockMeshDict file is, not that you should run it from there

Best regards,
Bruno
