    Maybe you could add some more details. E.g. Versions of your software and which tool/framework you are using.

we have an example format transaction

        const transaction = {
        actions: [{
            name: action,
            authorization: [{

Because you put wrong account.

account is that owner contract that has action. action can be found in account contract, So it generates that error
