You do not have python installed on your computer. This might help: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/Common_questions/set_up_a_local_testing_server

My guess is that it hasn't been installed on the terminal batch program you are running.

I'm probably wrong though, wait for a better answer from another student.
