you have put so much extra stuff in there that you don't need, keep it simple

// I have imported java.io.Console for you.  It is a variable called console.
String firstName = console.readLine("What is your name?");           
String lastName = console.readLine("What is your last name?");

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