See the error message for details,

"Another possibility is that you used an element which requires a
child element that you did not include. Hence the parent element is
"not finished", not complete. For instance, <head> generally requires
a <title>, lists (ul, ol, dl) require list items (li, or dt, dd), and
so on."

You're required to have a <title> element before closing the head.
