I have the same problem and I'm playing the Xbox version, this is 2nd time I've go through the tutorial from the beginning and both times this has happened. I just want to play the game.

Playing on PC Base Game & Dream Home Decorator. Athletic Career
I encountered this tutorial bug on my PS4 & PC games back in 2018 when I 1st bought the game. Tonight I forced the PC to complete the tutorial just because I wanted to defeat it. After every aspiration milestone the tutorial would be unable to move on. I saved the game to a new save -> exited Sims 4 -> exited Origin -> restarted PC -> open Origin -> repair sims 4 -> launch game. This took from 8pm until 2am my local time. the process was ridiculous & tedious. In game the process took from the start of the tutorial through to the next Monday. My sim Greg is now Athlete Career 4 & Alex has high skills painting 8 & cooking 5.

 

After the tutorial ends & Alex leaves the household I invited her to my home, turned testing cheats on & added her to the household where she had 0 skills. Alex is useless.

My save file from before the Aspiration completes & screenshots can be found here.

If you just want the overachiever trait this is the cheat code.

This last screenshot is amazing. Alex did nothing while Greg worked other than eat -> paint -> eat -> paint. She occasionally showered, slept & pottied. That's it. This wall of art sold for  $21,882 when I could finally access Build & Buy.

 

Please fix this bug. I do not understand why the tutorial for the game has been broken for this long but it is very difficult to learn how to play if you have no background in this type of game. I learned from watching sims tubers & even that was pretty hard as there are no PS4 sims tubers. A broken tutorial really does discourage new players.
