Trailhead Approval Process Failing

Does anyone know why I am getting this error, when the process clearly exists and is active?

Challenge not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
There was an unexpected error in your org which is preventing this assessment check from completing: System.DmlException: Process failed. First exception on row 0; first error: NO_APPLICABLE_PROCESS, No applicable approval process was found.

@Rick Kernes .... You need to unlock record on Final approval action and final rejection action and update the feild as mentioned in both the cases. and make sure for initial submission action you lock the status with feild type update to pending.

I am hoping you have all the three values(Prospect,pending,costomer) in Type picklist on account object.
Let me know.

Field updates are not necessary for the trailhead assignment.
Just make sure you are creating the apporval process on the Case object and not on account.
There is a picklist value with black background called "Manage Approval Processes For: " and make sure you chose Case here.

No Entry Criteria required, just assign yourself as approver and activate the approval process, also make sure you have enabled "Allow Approvals" in "Chatter settings" & enable tracking on Case object

Thanks,
Shamanth

Question
Create an approval process to support a case escalation procedure, with the ability to approve directly from Chatter.Verify Chatter Approvals is enabled and the Case standard object has Chatter feed tracking turned on.

The approval process must be created on the Case object and be named 'Case Escalation'. No entry criteria is required for this approval process and you can set yourself as the approver.
Upon entering the approval process, approval request notification needs to be posted to the Chatter feed.

My issues was:  

Just make sure you are creating the approval process on the Case object and not on Account.  Dropdown on very first step.

I was only able to solve it by deleting the procedure and recreating it using the JumpStart method. One tends to have an overactive imagination and fills in fields that are not neccesary :-)

I'm getting this too and its really frustrating because all appears fine.  I deleted and recreated etc but the TH checker does not even to see the Approval Process.  What gives?

I solved this by removing the Entry Criteria. It said that a criteria won't required, but it actually fails if one is present.

had the same problem and tried everything above.  Nothing got it done EXCEPT ensuring I am the approver.  Just make sure you pick Assigned Approver and select yourself

I got this done when I made sure that the entry criteria is blank (since it is not required in the challenge)

Thanks Paul, I was also oblivious to the "Manage Approval Processes for:" dropdown.  Needs to be justified left.

So i approved a couple records so it would appear on Chatter Feed before getting this error... Does anyone know how to remove approvals so I can delete the process?

So all I did was: 
1) setup > quicksearch > approval process *click*
2) on this page, find "manage approval processes for:" > select "Case" (THIS IS WHERE I KEPT FAILING)
3) Click on "Create New Approval Process" dropdown. > "Use Jumpstart Wizard"
4) Insert name defined within the instructions > "Unique Name" will become auto-filled. 
5) Click "field" and select "Created By" (field) "equals" (operator) "[my name]" (value)
6) Click radio button: "automatically assign to approver(s)" > click "user" > "[my name]
7) Save
8) Create Case object. You are the creator, by default, so nothing needs to be changed. 
9) Check Trailhead success.
