The words written in red at the bottom of your screenshot seem to indicate that you have not gotten an API key as instructed.

I don't know. But it looks like there's a link in your screenshot. It probably has instructions. Read carefully and follow the instructions and I think you'll do fine.

hi sportman, see the link below. For this bit you dont have to be computer savvy, just read the instructions carefully.

  • you do have to tick the first couple of boxes, but,
  • you don't have to tick consent to receive emails from them
  • do tick the "I am not a robot" box -- you may be presented with some puzzle to solve to further prove your humanity

You will be told how to proceed (presumably you'll get the API per email). Let us know how you get on.

So, I presume you have the API key.
Restart the install and add the API key as requested at that stage where you took the screenshot
