I want to learn automatic update real time data with python in ESRI training (https://learn.arcgis.com/en/projects/update-real-time-data-with-python/) but i have some trouble. Here I attach the error and the script that was made. Here my script

import sys, os, tempfile, json, logging, arcpy, shutil
import datetime as dt
from urllib import request
from urllib.error import URLError

def feedRoutine (url, workGDB, liveGDB):
    # Log file

    # Create workGDB and default workspace
    print("Starting workGDB...")
    logging.info("Starting workGDB... {0}".format(dt.datetime.now().strftime(log_format)))
    arcpy.env.workspace = workGDB
    gdb_name = os.path.basename(workGDB)
    if arcpy.Exists(arcpy.env.workspace):
        for feat in arcpy.ListFeatureClasses ("alert_*"):   
            arcpy.management.Delete(feat)
    else:

I'm very happy if someone can help me with this problem. Thank you

Try putting in some print statements of variables to see what they are returning at various steps within your code, as this is a useful troubleshooting technique.

I would also suggest breaking down the script into smaller components and get each component to work and add back code as you work out the errors that exist in your current code.

Can you add your script and the error as code formatted text, not as screenshots please:
