Declare a primary key/unique key and use REPLACE ( for that same delete-and-insert behavior. But beware of foreign key constraints and cascading deletes if you have any.

If insert-or-update is the desired behavior, then use the INSERT...ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE syntax ( as you were initially. Mind of the primary key/unique key as well.

Regarding your syntax error, after deleting the (!), the only thing I see wrong is the extra closing parenthesis at the end.
