    I'm not sure where you're reading the instructions from, but you're putting in a $ that you don't need.

    You can see from your prompt that it's got a $ at the end, signifying that you're a normal user. If you'd logged in as root (don't do that) your prompt would end in #. Some people put those symbols in their instructions to show whether you should run the commands as a normal user or as root, but it's not part of the command, and it's not something you need to type.
