It sometimes takes a few hours (up to two or three days) for the changes to actually show. Unfortunately, there's not much we can do about it except wait and be patient...
But if it still doesn't accept it after the 5th of April, please take a screenshot and post it here.
Because arriving is not an ongoing action, it's something that happened a single completed time in this context. A lot of the imperfect is like this, you get all the imperfect describing all the things that were going on until some specific thing happened and that specific thing which has a definite end is in the passé composé
