This one is outdated. Fixing it now.

It was removed long long back.

This is correct.

M-g n should get you to the error location (press repeatedly if there
are several errors). It works only for errors after the user input
marker (a small arrow in the left fringe indicating your last
command). Otherwise just click on the error, or navigate to it and RET.

If you have further problems please provide a small reproducible example
and describe your work-flow step by step.
