Hello I got the Pixel 3 and I'm following this guide for unlocking the bootloader:
https://www.xda-developers.com/google-pixel-3-unlock-bootloader-root-magisk/

But when I reach the stage where I enter "fastboot flashing unlock", nothing happens, the terminal says "usage: fastboot [ <option> ] <command>" as if it didn't recognize the command. I've tried it several times. Perhaps my fastboot files need to be updated? I am using the same ones I used a couple years ago.

Anyway please help. Thanks!
