good day, I am testing serial port communciation on raspberry pi 3 interface with SIM 900 module. The code are attached with error message. Thanks

import serial
import os, time
 
# Enable Serial Communication
port = serial.Serial("/dev/ttyS0", baudrate=38400, timeout=1)
 
# Transmitting AT Commands to the Modem
# '\r\n' indicates the Enter key
 
port.write('AT'+'\r\n')
rcv = port.read(10)
print (rcv)
