I think I have hear Portuguese people say "Não sei responder" in contexts where I would have said "I cannot answer". This could perhaps be an acceptable answer too.

Maybe they're interchangeable depending on the context, but the accurate translation of "não sei responder" is "I don't know how to answer". Slightly different meanings.
