@bahamat @donothingsuccessfully Thanks to all for your time! Moving .viminfo (risk averse method) fixes the problem. So I guess my .viminfo file was corrupted. Sincere thanks for your help. Happy Holidays!

@ire_and_curses Thanks! Indeed, when I enter file /etc/alternatives/vi, I obtain /etc/alternatives/vi: symbolic link to '/usr/bin/vim.basic'. So, you are right -- I am actually running vim. Thanks for your time!

@ire_and_curses Thanks! When I enter which vi, I get the output /usr/bin/vi. When I enter file /usr/bin/vi, I obtain the output /usr/bin/vi: symbolic link to /etc/alternatives/vi'. Does this mean I am using vi`?
