I’m stuck with this exercise.

I don’t get it, where/how to write in the Terminal?
Please see the screenshot.
Initially I thought that the Browser might be faulty, but I tried Google Chrome and same issue occurs.

Thank you!


I’ve found a solution.
So for some reason the Terminal did not load properly (even in the 2nd browser), after a few page refresh it worked fine.


When I type:

npm run build
and then:

I am getting message that permission was denied.
Anybody got same problem or know solution?
