That error means that you do not have your CURL extension enabled. Are you running a local server or a hosted server? If you are using a local server, you can navigate to the folder in which your php.ini file resides (for me that's "\xampp\php"), open up that php.ini file, ctrl+f to find "curl" and remove the semicolon (";") in front of that line (if a semicolon is there) to enable the CURL extension. You will have to restart your server for changes to take effect.
