It looks like your version of Audacity may be too old.
Download Audacity 2.3.3 via the Audacity website:
Follow the installation instructions from that page. When you are prompted, select the option to “replace” the older version.

Then try running the “open” command in the Terminal again.

I located this tip and it did work for me. I created an Automator App to launch with the command. There are probably many other ways to accomplish the same shortcut but this is what I did.
