Cant use url to give background to the body

Tell us what’s happening:
The tutorial is telling me to add a background property using the given url. I have tried both copying and typing the url but every time I try to run the test, it says the following : “Your body element should have a background property set to a url() with the given link.”

Can anyone please help what is wrong here with my code?

Your code so far

  body {
    background: url(
