"Any more" is normally written as two words in the UK.

What about this? https://www.grammarly.com/blog/anymore-vs-any-more/

Also I think I remember seeing something about this being an AmE/BrE difference as well.

Well, what about this? Google Ngrams shows that the phrase "not anymore" was almost never used before the year 1940, which I think is more or less proof that the spelling "any more" is always acceptable. https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=not+any+more%2Cnot+anymore&year_start=1800&year_end=2000&corpus=15&smoothing=3&share=&direct_url=t1%3B%2Cnot%20any%20more%3B%2Cc0%3B.t1%3B%2Cnot%20anymore%3B%2Cc0

Oxford Dictionaries gives the main spelling as "any more", and says that "anymore" is a North American spelling. https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/any_more

So, Duolingo definitely shouldn't say that "any more" "has an extra space". It should be accepted as correct.

'He forgets that he is not still a little boy' was rejected. I think it should be correct.

Apart from lack of Polish characters, this is exactly the right answer, it should have worked (with a message about typos)...
