To the surprise of no physicist anywhere -

Scientists Just Killed the EmDrive story and links at Popular Mechanics article

After failing critical thrust tests, the "impossible" engine has proven to be just that.

Now, however, physicists at the Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden) are saying those promising results showing thrust were all false positives that are explained by outside forces. The scientists recently presented their findings in three papers at Space Propulsion Conference 2020 +1, with titles like “High-Accuracy Thrust Measurements of the EmDrive and Elimination of False-Positive Effects.” (Read the other two studies here and here.)
