Hello! In the GNU guide for SED:
https://www.gnu.org/software/sed/manual/sed.html#Introduction, I see
the following:

sed -i 's/hello/world' file.txt

However on my ubuntu machine I get the following:

address@hidden:~$ sed --version

address@hidden:~$ cat file.txt
hello world
this is a message
good day!
address@hidden:~$ sed -i 's/hello/world' file.txt
sed: -e expression #1, char 13: unterminated `s' command

it works fine if I do

sed -i 's/hello/world/' file.txt

Thanks all!
