Hi Ayub,

You aren't being honest with your response to Rigel. Part of getting into the programming world is openly admitting you need help with certain topics and not being embarrassed about not knowing it all. This is about learning and people are here to help. But you have to be honest as well.

If you had watched the entire video, you would have discovered that at first Jim neglected to specify the name of the user when he first typed

sudo adduser

Just a couple seconds later, he corrected the error and typed

sudo adduser mike

This would move you beyond the error you're asking help about and successfully completing this video.
