Extracting Julia zip file doesn't create ~/juliax.x.x/lib/julia/sys.so automatically

I’m trying to install Julia locally in a 64-bit online IDE (MimirIDE) but after downloading and extracting Julia folder:

sudo wget https://julialang-s3.julialang.org/bin/linux/x64/1.4/julia-1.4.2-linux-x86_64.tar.gz
sudo tar -xvzf julia-1.4.2-linux-x86_64.tar.gz

and when I try to run Julia, I get the following error

user@mimir: ~ > ./julia-1.4.2/bin/julia 
ERROR: could not load library "/home/hasan/julia-1.4.2/bin/../lib/julia/sys.so"
/home/hasan/julia-1.4.2/bin/../lib/julia/sys.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

doing this in my local Linux machine run Julia normally. I was wondering if I can create the sys.so manually in the online IDE.

Also, running free -m output the following

user@mimir: ~ > free -m
              total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
Mem:          15290         488        1415         152       13386       14315
Swap:         16383          98       16285

Why the sudo for wget and tar?
Maybe access rights are wrong.

tried without sudo but didn’t work, also noticed that after running wget and tar for the first time, Julia run for once and when exit and run Julia again, it give the same sys.so error. Not sure why it keeps removing that file

If it works on your local linux but not in the mimir shell, I guess that there is something unusual in mimir. You may ask at mimir. Or post the environment of user@mimir with command env. But its not sure that there is something obvious.
