Hi @guneetbhatia.96 ,
It seems that you haven’t installed the python. First, install the python .
Let me know in case you need further assistance.

Hi, as show in your command error, there is a typing error. It’s supposed to be python and not pyton. Please check and let me know it this solves the issue for you.

You can download the python installer from here for windows OS,

Download the required version for your use. Python 2.7.13 is widespread.

Linux systems come with python pre-installed. Else, you can run the following command,
sudo apt-get install python

Then verify if python is installed by running this command on the terminal,
python --version
It should display the version number of python.

while running file by using sudo command, you should mention the version of the python.
For example : sudo python3
hope this will help.

Hi @guneetbhatia.96

sudo apt-get update
