As it says, you don't have permission to write to that file.
..and if you check the permissions on that file, you'll probably
discover it's because it's owned by root.
Why would it be owned as root? Probably because you ran the last install
as root and it created the file.
Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
