How To Build a Slackbot in Python on Ubuntu 20.04 error

Hello I am following your steps using Mac os 14 (for environment variables, I have modified the steps where mac is different from ubuntu). I have setup the secret token, bot token and setup tunnel using ngrok. The event channel is verified on the slack page. I run the python, the app starts properly but is unable to handle requests. I have not modified the script in any way. The error I get is
