LAB 5.1 git commit fail

In step 6 of Lab 5.1 we must execute

 git commit -m "My initial commit" --author="The genuis me <me@myself.com>"

I get the reply back

"*** Please tell me who you are." .....fatal: unable to auto-detect email address (got 'student@ubuntu.(none)'). I am using the official course VM  Ubuntu 16-04.

In step 7 you do actually set these options, and once completed step 6 will work

 I suggest to maybe swap the steps in the labs?
