A mistake has crept into the given answer to this one: "my family is long away from here" which clearly doesn't make sense in English. The answer I gave that was corrected this way was "my family is a long way from here".

'My family is a long way from here' was marked wrong (I should have said a very long way) but I was given 'My family is long away from here.' as a correct solution. As someone has already commented, 'long away' doesn't make sense in English.

Should there be an extra accent in οικογένεια? => Η οικογένειά μου

Yes, it should, this is a known issue of the current tree.
