  • Welcome to the English stack, but commands aren't be true or false. You probably mean to ask about whether they're both grammatically correct or have different meanings. You should probably also go to the English Language Learners stack. They're better for basic questions like this. – lly Aug 12 '18 at 15:34
  • Neither is true: true does not mean correct in English. – tchrist Aug 12 '18 at 16:43

They are both perfectly fine. The try not to usage is more common in most contexts. The try to not usage might be more likely where one wants to put more emphasis on the idea of the repetition not happening.
