I tried following this tutorial to change mode of my Huwaei E3372 modem https://blog.unixweb.de/usb-stick-lte-telekom-magenta-eins-huawei-e398-modem-raspberry-pi/

System Raspberry 3B+ OS: Raspbian Stretch

But when i run:

usb_modeswitch -v 12d1 -p 14fe -M '5553424312345678000000000000001106200000010000000000000000000000'

I get following error:
