String contains First Name, still getting that error, String firstName = console.readLine("First name:");

I was coding like that but still cant finish course because of that error, can anyone explain what am I doing wrong?

String firstName = console.readLine("First name:");
String lastName = console.readLine("Last name:");
console.printf("%s",firstName);
