Actually, Magento removes error message after a few time using data-bind="visible: isVisible() this visible function call timer and hide message after some time so just remove this code it will work.

Do not remove data-bind="click otherwise user cannot remove message.

Try to below way :

Copy file from core Magento below-given path:


Past in below path


Replace below code

div data-role="checkout-messages" class="messages" data-bind="visible: isVisible(), click: removeAll">

With this code

<div data-role="checkout-messages" class="messages" data-bind="click: removeAll">

Run below command

bin/magento setup:upgrade

bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

I hope it helps! Thanks.
