Greetings Gabriel,

Do you mean setSet? Because those commands are for setSet, not topoSet

I took a look at the tutorial "heatTransfer/chtMultiRegionFoam/multiRegionHeater" and I think I understand your confusion. It still has the file "makeCellSets.setSet", but the tutorial actually uses topoSet instead, which relies on the dictionary file "system/topoSetDict".

To use, you must run setSet like this:
setSet -batch makeCellSets.setSet
This briefly explained if you run:
setSet -help
Best regards,
