Audacity version 3.0.2
The current version of Audacity is 3.0.0 https://www.audacityteam.org/download/windows/

That MP3 file works fine for me with Audacity 3.0.0.

How does importing of this file behave itself in the version 3.0.2? I mean, there’s never been a mistake like that before.

The latest release version of Audacity is 3.0.0.

Are you using "Audacity 3.0.2 alpha", or "Audacity 3.0.2 rc02"?
Where did you get that version of Audacity from?

Note that pre-release versions of Audacity should not be used for production work. Any pre-release versions of Audacity that are made available through official channels are for testing purposes only.

We are not able to provide user support for any versions of Audacity that are obtained through unofficial channels as we have no way of knowing if they have been modified or infected with malware.

I'd sure like to know, why I can’t import. I downloaded the same file from the other site (vk.com) - error message again! Why won't the program let it in?

I would like to know why as well. I tried it in 2.4.2, in 3.0.0, and in 3.0.2 RC02 with no issues - I am unable to duplicate the problem. Have you tried resetting your preferences: Tools > Reset Configuration or rebooting.

Since you shouldn't be running production on 3.0.2, try it in 3.0.0 or 2.4.2. If you still have problems, try importing it with FFmpeg. see here: viewtopic.php?p=408815#p408815

If that doesn't fix it, try converting it to .AIF in VLC, and importing the .AIF into Audacity.

I hope this helps. :D

Hi! I converted it with online converter. From mp3 to mp3, without changing, formally. Then, everything is fine. There is still a question about the original, nonconverted file. Audacity for some reason doesn't recognize it's format, as mp3. Though it's really mp3. I tried importing it with mp3DirectCut - everything is fine!
