If the context is important, I'm building a website along with other people. One of my colleagues wrote the following error message:

There is no possibility to edit invalid something.

It sounds a bit strange to me, and I think

It's impossible to edit invalid something.

is more appropriate in this case, but I don't have any arguments.

  • Please don't use "smth" here. – tchrist May 7 '18 at 15:56
  • I believe the OP's use of "smth" was to keep the title short, or at least shorter. I don't see anything wrong in that. @tchrist – A. Kvåle May 7 '18 at 16:47

I don't see any difference in meaning.

"there is no possibility to do" is more formal

"it's impossible to do" informal
