I am trying to install MongoDB as per instructions provided in their documentation.

I am getting this error and I am unable to resolve this issue. Any help in this regards will be highly appreciated:

The commands I am running are as under:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv 9DA31620334BD75D9DCB49F368818C72E52529D4

For Ubuntu 18 LTS:

echo "deb [ arch=amd64 ] https://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu bionic/mongodb-org/4.0 multiverse" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-4.0.list

And Then:

 sudo apt-get update

And Then:

sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org

After running above mentioned command i get this error:
