"The party is not much fun" or not "very entertaining". Can't say "very fun".

This is apparently regional. As far as I know, "very fun" is acceptable in the United States.

It's the informal use. See https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/fun - Amusing, entertaining, or enjoyable. ‘it was a fun evening’ ‘being on set with the cast and crew was really fun’

Could it be translated as "La fiesta no está muy divertida"? ("no está" - right now; "no es" - always).

Agreed, sometime Duolingo throws words into the mix that have not been presented beforehand.

Funny would be laughable, wouldn't "... not very much fun" be better ?

One has to allow that language is a constantly evolving thing, whether we like it or not. Agreed, Duo sometimes comes up with combinations that simply don't exist anywhere, but this is not one of them.

That's true, and maybe in 50, 30 or even 10 years, this will be standard, but at the moment, you can see that lots of people think it sounds bad, so I think Duo should avoid it, just as they should avoid things that were standard 50 years ago and have fallen out of use nowadays.
