Most likely, E4620 is your system's hostname.

Your question isn't related to bash.  It's a system administration
question, and you should ask your operating system's mailing list or
support forum, whatever that may be.

If you don't know what operating system you're using, try some of the
following commands:

uname -a
lsb_release -a
ls -l /etc/*version
cat /etc/*version
cat /etc/*release

Another approach might be to track down whoever gave you the "eva"
account on this system, and ask them for help.
