In the following link of Ai tutorial:
while working on the 5th video, I was unable to join the second part of the eye:
When I join the left one, the following thing happens:
I even closed illustrator then reopened, still the same.
There seems to be a mismatch of the Anchor Points in both sides: to the right the arcs cross so you have the end Anchor Point of the lower arc above that of the upper one and a short vertical segment between them, hence the two Miter Join spikes; to the left the arcs do not (even) meet (no overlap of the Butt Caps).
Going back and obtaining coinciding end Anchor Points would be a good start.
But there seems to be a contradiction between "unable to join this one" and "When I join the left one, the following thing happens:"
How have you obtained the second non solution?
That exactly my problem
"That exactly my problem"
If your problem is exactly the same as the OP's, then use the Join tool and drag across each side of the eye.
I've try that already, it's doesn't working
Show a screen shot.
The result are exactly the same as Star2 screen shot posted
Hey there, I am also having this same issue during the tutorial. For folks trying to help, could you please check out the video, the files, and the instructions. In going through the exercise, I am getting the exact same problem. Check out Video 5 here: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/how-to/drawing-tools-basics.html?playlist=/services/playlist.hel...

Yes, I have seen these too. I'm curious if you actually did part 5 of the tutorial? It really is confusing and doesn't seem to show how to fix the problem. Could you give it a watch and try to follow along.
