Sketch distance cannot resolve

I am trying to use the distance tool to constraint a sketch.

Here is the blue line in my sketch, I am focusing on the top one. Manually movable:

Fixing the length with the distance tool:

When I try to change the length by entering a distance, the sketch becomes unresolved.

I don't understand why I can manually move the line to approximately where I want it, but not assign a length with the distance tool.

Here is the project.

What is going on?

EDIT: interestingly, it works if I remove the half circle. I don't understand why that half circle is blue to begin with, it's not movable after fixing the distance (in the picture with 8.91 above).
