I am having the same problem with the error about having an entry in 2a. This is noted all over the Community and I haven't found anyone that's landed on an answer that works.

bc8434 - I talked to a tax professional staffed at H&R Block and they informed me the correct way was to ignore your paper form and just leave 2a blank. They calculate the taxable amount elsewhere.
Very disappointing and unintuitive.
I filed with Turbo Tax this year after struggling with H&R Block's declining quality. When I entered my 1099-R and back-door roth there it made a lot of sense and everything went as expected.
