Beginner - Need to set account global identity

I am trying to establish my global identity so that I can connect to Git Hub.

I received an error message as follows, but when I type in the console (the below "git config" commands, I only get error messages.

Any help/ suggestions would be most appreciated.

*** Please tell me who you are.
Run
git config --global user.email "you@example.com"
git config --global user.name "Your Name"
to set your account's default identity.

Can you explain how is this related to R or RStudio? so far you are just showing git commands that you should be running on a system terminal (not on an R console).

This is a nice resource about interfacing GitHub with RStudio

And there is also the official free Git book for getting started with Git

Take a look especially to this chapter

Thank you for your reply.

I don't know how to answer your question. I am brand new to R, R Studio, and Git Hub. I am taking a beginners course in Coursera for Data Science and they are introducing me to R and R Studio and want me to connect to Git Hub.

When I tried to push a commit back to Git Hub, I received the error. Please see if the png file helps.
