looking at the line again looks like you missed at least some of the
instructions.
you should be able to just copy paste this whole block from `
deb.frrouting.org` directly into bash
though you should make sure to delet*e *

/etc/apt/sources.list.d/frr.list

before trying the following again

-------

*# add GPG key*
curl -s https://deb.frrouting.org/frr/keys.asc | sudo apt-key add -
*# possible values for FRRVER: frr-6 frr-7 frr-stable
# frr-stable will be the latest official stable release*
FRRVER="frr-stable"
echo deb https://deb.frrouting.org/frr $(lsb_release -s -c) $FRRVER |
sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/frr.list
*# update and install FRR*
sudo apt update && sudo apt install frr frr-pythontools

------
