The image you are requesting does not exist or is no longer available is a common error of ChatGPT. ChatGPT shows this error while loading images from Imgur during output. If you are also experiencing this error, I have a trick to get the image from ChatGPT.

Why does the ChatGPT image doesn’t exist Occurs?

ChatGPT is trained on data available till 2021, and due to this, if you request an image from ChatGPT, it gives you an image through markdown language with links from its database. Most of these links are obsolete and no longer working.

Due to this, it shows the following error: ” The image you are requesting does not exist or is no longer available. “┬áHere is the screenshot of the error:

Wikipedia images are rarely deleted as they are uploaded after full checking and by trusted members, while Anyone can upload images on Imgur. People tend to delete those uploaded images after a certain period, so you can see an error stating that the image does not exist or is no longer available.

I hope you have understood why this error occurs. Here is an example output by ChatGPT when I requested an image from it through Imgur.
