I'm new to python and Django - syntax error help please

I just started the new Django Pt1 course and still trying to set everything up, typed in everything as Mosh said to the terminal (i.e. like so: python manage.py startapp playground) to create a new app but I’m getting an invalid syntax error saying: File “manage.py”, line 17
) from exc
^
I didn’t do anything to the manage.py file so I have no idea what is happening? Heeeelp! Thank you.

I may have found the problem : Import “django.core.management” could not be resolved from sourcePylancereportMissingModuleSource
but I don’t know how to solve this problem…

did u install django globally or on a virtual environment? if so did u activate the virtual environment?

Virtual. I have done this: storefront % pipenv shell

Shell for /Users/ewa/.local/share/virtualenvs/storefront-I5Re_dFz already activated.

So, I don’t understand what I’ve done wrong?
