Why can't I update a page created recently and why doesn't it appear in search results?

I created a movie page (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4559584/) several days ago, which was already approved on March 31, in the morning. Until now I am trying to update information, but in vain. I continuously get the following message:
'tt4559584' is invalid
Note: if the title or name you are trying to update was added to the database only recently, it may not yet be available for updates. Please try again in a few hours.
That was also more than 24 hours ago. Why is this?

Additionally, why doesn't the film show up in IMDB search results?

Thank you.

There is a new system which allows approved pages to appear faster or in your case, the title's constant number to have been created. But, edit pages are still in the older system and an additional day or two is needed for the page to be updated. If approved yesterday, I'd wait an additional day or two before trying to edit.

edit to add: The page is live and searchable now, actually. You still might have to wait to edit it...I didn't test it.

The edit form is now also available.

Good luck!

Thank you. I successfully edited the page, but it still does not appear in search results.

It was searchable when you first posted...I know because I searched it and found it. It's still searchable. It comes up 14th on the list so you need to either look down a ways or search it as listed, "Django (2014)," which will result in it coming up first.

You're welcome.
