Perhaps there is a syntax error in /etc/bashrc or ~/.bahsrc

You've still got an error somewhere. Try moving the .bashrc to old.bashrc (do the same with any other files you've changed recently).

Make sure you source your .bashrc after making changes. (or log out and back in).

Enter command without #.

"#" - just mark of the root privileges.

It comes when the terminal is opened without entering any thing
