I did not solve the error I am getting when attempting to edit the crontab
file with the crontab -e command but I did receive the following procedure
which works:

crontab -l > save.crontab
vi save.crontab
crontab < save.crontab

I export the crontab file, edit it and reimport it.

Without ever having felt sorry for itself.
