    Instead of screenshots, please copy/paste directly from Terminal and apply "code" formatting. This makes the text appear in search results (and also helps people with screen readers).

When you ran the first command, you pressed "any other key" than RETURN, and so you never actually installed homebrew.

Re-run the first command and make sure to hit the return (enter) key when asked.
