The validity check runs when saving to see if there are any low level technical errors in the model. to me knowledge the file saves anyway, even if the validity check feedback appears to suggest otherwise.

Copy and paste all of it into a blank model and see what happens then.

unhide everything and switch on all layers before doing this.

You can check the modified date of the file, and even open it in a separate instance of SketchUp to make sure it’s the latest version. Copying entities can be used to, but be aware that this doesn’t include styles, scenes, empty layers, unused component definitions, currently hidden entities and probably even more things that I can’t remember right now.

I have seen this when the model has a component definition that references itself. It happens when you import a component that has been saved inside a SketchUp model with the same name as the component itself.
