TWRP installation error Samsung S5 Neo

Forgive me I’m a complete noob, but really want to get this os installed. I’ve read some other queries on this forum concerning this, but they either weren’t applicable or I didn’t understand.

Basically I’m trying to install the recovery TWRP using Heimdall 1.42 and am encountering the error "
ERROR: Failed to receive file part response" If anyone could help that would be fantastic, thanks so much.
I am posting the Terminal response:

heimdall flash --RECOVERY twrp-3.6.1_9-0-s5neolte.img --no-reboot

Heimdall v1.4.2

Hi @dink, welcome to the /e/ forum. My first reaction would be to try a different USB cable.

While we do see

indicating communication is open … then

ERROR: Failed to receive file part response!

might well be a simple “two way communication” type error. Please avoid USB hubs and check you are using a “main” USB port on your PC (rather than for instance a “front” or “secondary” USB port – happens sometimes in both PC and some laptops)

With a Samsung, always worth studying the Odin mode screen for any clues.
