Blend tool is not blending

Hi, I'm running into a problem with the Blend tool, having two objects that are separated letters in a circle shape. They completely repeat each other, but have a different size. The smaller one is under the larger one. Their centers are superimposed on each other. The essence of the problem is that the Blend tool simply refuses to work, the program writes that the tool is not available. I have no idea how to solve this problem, because I work in Adobe Illustrator for the first time in my life. Please help, important project.

Please show us what's in the Layers panel. We need to see those groups.

To me it looks like the two objects that you want to blend, are all grouped in one big group.

What you need to have is two groups : one for each of the lettershapes: the orange ones and then the red ones

 

Did you watch my video? It explains how your base artwork should look like.

It looks like you used an Envelop Distort to create the shape of the text. What did you do after? Did you expand it or leave it as is?

Make sure the text is just one compound path. You might need to ungroup and release compound a couple of times, then make it a compound path. Below is a blend between two compound paths.
