    The message is quite clear. 42 and "license_key" are likely wrong.

    If this is sample code, you likely have to subscribe and get your own values. If you changed them to avoid to disclose them, triple check in your original source code that you are using the correct values maybe using links found at https://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geoip2/web-services/#Authorization
