I’m using modern 2 template and I have created 2 widgets and 2 static blocks which I want to display on
Cart and Checkout.

I have setup a layout update for each widget and In checkout it displays exactly where I want it to, but in the cart it displays underneath the coupon/shipping calc and proceed to checkout button even though for both widgets I have chosen, “Main Content Area”

I noticed in the paging drop down, there are actually 3 different shopping cart options and I’ve tried all 3 but only the 3rd will will display my content when I choose Main Content Area

So for example on my cart widget I am trying to set layout to
Specified page:Shopping Cart>Main Content Area <- this displays under the cart and under shipping calc/proceed to checkout button,

and in checkout I have used
Specified page:One Page Checkout>Main Content Area <- this displays where I expect it to
