Yeah, Daniel Miller already told you what's wrong and how to fix it.

>>> pdnsutil increase-serial example.org
>> Error: Parsing record content (try 'pdnsutil check-zone'): missing

>> 0'

The "missing field at the end" means it's looking for more fields than
you've put there.  Daniel suggested:

> ns.example.org contact at example.org 2018110601 86400 7200 604800 300

If you want to use autoserial, you set the serial number itself to 0, as
you say, so then you get something like:

ns.example.org contact at example.org 0 86400 7200 604800 300

As Daniel said, the other parameters aren't optional (and the above
values for them are just (reasonable) suggestions).

of Lisp.  Lisp is the most important idea in computer science.  --Alan Kay
