The `console.error` not showing the error

Hi I'm following the video codes, but why it doesn't show any error on the console.error when I run it on my computer, at workspaces it work fine? I'm using linux with node v8.10.0..

const https = require('https');

function printMessage(username, badgeCount, points) {
    const message = `${username} have ${badgeCount} badges and total points ${points}`; 

function getProfile(username) {
    const request = https.get(`https://wwwteamtreehouse.com/${username}.json`, (resp) => {
        let body = "";
        resp.on('data', data => {
            body += data.toString();

        resp.on('end', () => {
            const profile = JSON.parse(body);
            printMessage(username, profile.badges.length, profile.points.total);

    request.on('error', err => {

const users = process.argv.slice(2);

Not sure if the error that is meant to occur is the incorrect request URL, but it is missing a dot/period between www and teamtreehouse.com.

It's likely this is throwing an error that can't be handled by the https module.
