In your output it says "gpg: can't open 'SHA256SUMS.gpg': No such file or directory". Do you have a SHA256SUMS.gpg file as referenced at

Right before the part that has the gpg --verify command that you ran, it mentions "Once you have downloaded both SHA256SUMS and SHA256SUMS.gpg, you can verify the signature as follows:".

Please ensure you are reading the documentation in full, and paying attention to the screen output.
