What I was trying is:

I went to the Navigation from the Site Settings page. Then I changed to “Managed Navigation: The navigation items will be represented using a Managed Metadata term set.” in the Global Navigation.

And I changed to “Managed Navigation: The navigation items will be represented using a Managed Metadata term set.” in the Current Navigation.

Then I created some Term Set in the “Managed Navigation: Term Set” section.

After that, I save the page and do something.

Now after this I wanted to go back to my previous where my left navigation will come with Structural Navigation. So I followed the below steps.

I select the “Structural Navigation: Display the navigation items below the current site” in Global navigation.

And I select “Structural Navigation: Display only the navigation items below the current site” in the current Navigation.

Now when I save the settings and go back to the home page I got the below error:
