You're trying to run code from example, dont do it, try with real transaction id, not from examples.

Examples:
> bitcoin-cli gettransaction "1075db55d416d3ca199f55b6084e2115b9345e16c5cf302fc80e9d5fbf5d48d"
> bitcoin-cli gettransaction "1075db55d416d3ca199f55b6084e2115b9345e16c5cf302fc80e9d5fbf5d48d" true
> curl --user myusername --data-binary '{"jsonrpc": "1.0", "id":"curltest", "method": "gettransaction", "params": ["1075db55d416d3ca199f55b6084e2115b9345e16c5cf302fc80e9d5fbf5d48d"] }' -H 'content-type: text/plain;' http://127.0.0.1:8332/
