There are a couple of minor mistakes in the code for (5) COMPARE + LEARN: Comparing our Errors and Setting our New Weight:
1) In Python, OR operator is or, not || like C descendants or Java.
2) The last if statement should compare e_up against e_dn.
So, the correct code would be:

if(error > e_dn or error > e_up):
    if(e_dn < e_up):
        weight -= lr
    if(e_up < e_dn):
        weight += lr
