[Tutor] Error Python version 3.6 does not support this syntax.

Dear Python Experts,

With the below code snippet, I am seeing the below error, I am using
python 3.6, could you please what could be the issue?

Code Snippet:
import time
import pexpect
import subprocess
import sys

class BluetoothctlError(Exception):
    """This exception is raised, when bluetoothctl fails to start."""

class Bluetoothctl:
    """A wrapper for bluetoothctl utility."""

    def __init__(self):
        out = subprocess.check_output("rfkill unblock bluetooth", shell = True)
        self.child = pexpect.spawn("bluetoothctl", echo = False)

    def get_output(self, command, pause = 0):
        """Run a command in bluetoothctl prompt, return output as a
list of lines."""
        self.child.send(command + "\n")
        start_failed = self.child.expect(["bluetooth", pexpect.EOF])

        if start_failed:
            raise BluetoothctlError("Bluetoothctl failed after running
" + command)

        return self.child.before.split("\r\n")
the issue seems to be here

    def start_scan(self):
        """Start bluetooth scanning process."""
            out = self.get_output("scan on")
        except BluetoothctlError as e:
            return None

if __name__ == "__main__":

    print("Init bluetooth...")
    bl = Bluetoothctl()
    print("Scanning for 10 seconds...")
    for i in range(0, 10):

Error Logs:
