Partition table error flashing TWRP to FF3

I am using the FF3 with /e/ as OS. I have been trying to flash TWRP to the device but I always get an error saying “partition table doesn’t exist”. I unlocked the bootloader via my computer while the phone is in fastboot mode. After it has been unlocked I tried to flash the TWRP image to the recovery partition using the command:
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img

However, I get the following error message:
sending ‘recovery’ (28690 KB)…
OKAY [ 0.803s]
writing ‘recovery’…
FAILED (remote: partition table doesn’t exist)
finished. total time: 0.820s

Does anyone have any advice how to solve this issue? Thank you!

On FP3 afaik it’s better (different from e.g. FP2) not to install twrp but to boot it in case you’ll need it.
See e.g. here:

This will not work on the Fairphone 3.

Please follow directions in the topic @ff2u linked to, and think twice before installing TWRP instead of just booting it when you need it.
In case you were used to this install procedure on the Fairphone 2 …
