I can't receive data

Hi, I am using the example code from the ubidots library for the arduino IDE, I use an esp8266 board, I want to take the value of a variable from a device and it gives me an error when receiving the variable. Do you need more information, the sketch or photos of the ubidot variables? If you need them, let me know. I’m kind of new to this, thanks for your help

Please attach the section the code to be able to test, the post and get method of the documentation works for me.

Hello, thanks for answering. I attach the code. I don’t know what you mean by the post.
The library downloads it from the ubidots docs.
greetings and thanks.
