Treebook Validating Format Error

my users_test.rb code

test "a user should have a profile name without spaces" do
  user = User.new
  user.profile_name = "A Profile Name With Spaces"
  assert !user.save
  assert !user.errors[:profile_name].empty?
  assert users.errors[:profile_name].include?("must be formatted correctly.")

my users.rb code

validates :profile_name, format: {
  with: /\A[a-zA-Z\-\_]+\Z/,
  message: "must be formatted correctly."

This is the error message i get in terminal when I run ruby -Itest test/unit/user_test.rb

1) Error:
NoMethodError: undefined method ` errors ' for []:Array test/unit/user_test.rb:35:in `block in <class:UserTest>' 

5 tests, 10 assertions, 0 failures, 1 errors, 0 skips
