Importing manifest error: No compatible directory format

I am trying to import sequences with a manifest file via the following command:
qiime tools import --type 'SampleData[PairedEndSquencesWithQuality]'
--input-path /homes/zbuffing/bats/KDWPTcave1_5/cave1_5manif.txt
--output-path /homes/zbuffing/bats/KDWPTcave1_5/fastqout/paired-end-demux.qza
--input-format PairedEndFastqManifestPhred33V2

I am receiving the error message below:
Semantic type SampleData[PairedEndSquencesWithQuality] does not have a compatible directory format.

I am fairly new to bioinformatics so if there is any additional information I can provide to help solve this, please let me know! Thank you.

Hello @Zoe_Buffington, it looks like you made a typo and are missing the first "e" in "Sequences". Thank you.
