It is now obvious the issue was not fixed fully. The developers are aware of it now. Let’s hope it will be fixed soon enough.

An error occurred while saving the commentLyndsey commented
I am also having this issue after upgrading to OS 10.13 (High Sierra). I am on Illustrator 20.0.1 and am saving my files to the local drive.
I save my files multiple times throughout working on them, but the error only shows up every couple of saves. During this time the file will be open in Illustrator, not being used by any other programs (that I know of). Sometimes I will need to switch to the login screen while away from my desk, but that is the closest I get to actually "closing" the files the whole time I'm working on them.
Thanks for reporting the issue, Illustrator team really appreciates this.
