No idea.

What OS are you running?
What program are you running?
What version?
What are you typing to get this error?
Is it a script?
Is it programming code?
Can you share the code or script?

What you just said is akin to saying "I have a problem with my car, please advise how to fix." See here on how to ask good technical questions: http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

You can certainly find help. Most utilities have a website/forum/IRC channel/community associated with them that you can visit. There are also plenty of pentesting guides out there, how-to's, various information regarding it, you just have to look hard enough. BlackArch has a community https://blackarch.org/community.html, as does Kali linux, https://www.kali.org/community/, and both are very geared towards the pentesting and security community.

I would suggest studying the basics of Linux, Windows and Networking before you go any further though. Understand that Pentesting can be of two types: A) Script kiddies that run utilities and have no idea what they are doing B) Pentesters that use tools to prod systems that they understand to find gaps and vulnerabilities. If you are hoping to do this professionally you will want to be in the second group.
