There is a subtlety here with '='
Note the error states "=ln" so it's indicated at least
there is an issue with the '='.

In general short options do not use '=' but rather whitespace
to delimit arguments.

So you need -n 'ln'

This is one of the reasons we discourage the addition
of short options to coreutils that take arguments.
