Here is the documentation of add-to-list:

,----[ C-h f add-to-list RET ]
| add-to-list is a compiled Lisp function in `subr.el'.
| (add-to-list LIST-VAR ELEMENT &optional APPEND COMPARE-FN)
| This function has a compiler macro.
| Add ELEMENT to the value of LIST-VAR if it isn't there yet.
| The test for presence of ELEMENT is done with `equal',
| or with COMPARE-FN if that's non-nil.
| If ELEMENT is added, it is added at the beginning of the list,
| unless the optional argument APPEND is non-nil, in which case
| ELEMENT is added at the end.
| The return value is the new value of LIST-VAR.

Note what arguments the function takes, and what arguments you are
calling it with.

Then look at the error again:

> ╰────

Can you see what might be happening, please?

  Best regards,
