CalculateTargetCoverage error

Sorry - I'm very inexperienced at this. I'm trying to follow this documentation:

I was a little unclear on what to use as the target file, so I've downloaded the following from SureDesign:
Agilent SureSelect DNA - SureSelect Human All Exon V6 r2 - Covered bed file extended by 100bp on either side

This is the command I'm using:
software/bioinf/gatk_v4/gatk-launch CalculateTargetCoverage -I hg19.chronly.alignment.bam -T S07604514_Padded.bed -transform PCOV -groupBy SAMPLE -targetInfo FULL –keepdups -O /test.pcov

Then I got:
A USER ERROR has occurred: Invalid argument '–keepdups'

So removed that, then:
