You may have "enough braces", but you don't have an equal number of { (five) and } (four).
Proper indntation would make the error immediately obvious.

Go through the code and find the matching } for every {.
Some editors will do this when you position the cursor on a { and press a key combo: Ctrl+] on mine) the editor wll move the cursor to the pairing }

Otherwise print the listing on paper and use a pencil to connect each { to its pairing }

You still have not properly indented the code. It makes it very hard to read.

It's indented but it gets messed up when I paste it here.. :p
