Hi Alexander,
I don't know how that error message occurs, maybe the others will have some idea.  It sounds like you wouldn't be able to fetch anything from the PDB.

In Chimera, I can fetch that entry and others from the PDB without problem.  I also tried turning off my internet connection first to see what error message results, but it is a different message from what you reported.  You could try using Help... Report a Bug in the Chimera menu and describe how you got the message, and include your email address if you want feedback.

To be able to go through the tutorial now, however, you could just go to the PDB web site,
search for entry 1d86, download the PDB file (text) to your computer in some location where you will be able to find it in a file browser, then open the file as a local file from Chimera (use File... Open in the menu and browse to its location). Then proceed with the tutorial.

I hope this helps,
