This contract is straight from the solidity docs. But am failing to deploy this:

// SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-3.0
pragma solidity >=0.7.0 <0.9.0;

contract Owned {
    constructor() { owner = payable(msg.sender); }
    address payable owner;

// Use `is` to derive from another contract. Derived
// contracts can access all non-private members including
// internal functions and state variables. These cannot be
// accessed externally via `this`, though.
contract Destructible is Owned {
    // The keyword `virtual` means that the function can change
    // its behaviour in derived classes ("overriding").
    function destroy() virtual public {
        if (msg.sender == owner) selfdestruct(owner);

// These abstract contracts are only provided to make the
// interface known to the compiler. Note the function
// without body. If a contract does not implement all
// functions it can only be used as an interface.
abstract contract Config {
    function lookup(uint id) public virtual returns (address adr);

abstract contract NameReg {
    function register(bytes32 name) public virtual;
    function unregister() public virtual;

// Multiple inheritance is possible. Note that `owned` is
// also a base class of `Destructible`, yet there is only a single
// instance of `owned` (as for virtual inheritance in C++).
contract Named is Owned, Destructible {
    constructor(bytes32 name) {
        Config config = Config(0xD5f9D8D94886E70b06E474c3fB14Fd43E2f23970);

    // Functions can be overridden by another function with the same name and
    // the same number/types of inputs.  If the overriding function has different
    // types of output parameters, that causes an error.
    // Both local and message-based function calls take these overrides
    // into account.
    // If you want the function to override, you need to use the
    // `override` keyword. You need to specify the `virtual` keyword again
    // if you want this function to be overridden again.
    function destroy() public virtual override {
        if (msg.sender == owner) {
            Config config = Config(0xD5f9D8D94886E70b06E474c3fB14Fd43E2f23970);
            // It is still possible to call a specific
            // overridden function.

// If a constructor takes an argument, it needs to be
// provided in the header or modifier-invocation-style at
// the constructor of the derived contract (see below).
contract PriceFeed is Owned, Destructible, Named("GoldFeed") {
    function updateInfo(uint newInfo) public {
        if (msg.sender == owner) info = newInfo;

    // Here, we only specify `override` and not `virtual`.
    // This means that contracts deriving from `PriceFeed`
    // cannot change the behaviour of `destroy` anymore.
    function destroy() public override(Destructible, Named) { Named.destroy(); }
    function get() public view returns(uint r) { return info; }

    uint info;

When deploying the PriceFeed contract, getting the following error:

creation of PriceFeed errored: VM error: revert. revert The transaction has been reverted to the initial state. Note: The called function should be payable if you send value and the value you send should be less than your current balance. Debug the transaction to get more information.

When deploying the Named Contract with the Argument "GoldFeed" (without quotes obviously):

creation of Named errored: Error encoding arguments: Error: invalid arrayify value (argument="value", value="GoldFeed", code=INVALID_ARGUMENT, version=bytes/5.0.5)

There are no compilation errors. Any assistance over here.
