~/.julia is being created with the wrong owner during the installation – I think you should be able to fix this with

$ sudo chown -R Evveric ~/.julia

Thanks, I had same issue and this seems to have done the trick.

thank you! indeed it solved all issue!

Many thanks! I have been encountering similar problems when trying to install a number of julia packages. If I use sudo for installation, I have to run sudo julia all the time to load that package, or I would get a Permission error, which can be quite annoying.

I have seen this many times, where the fix is to run something like “$ sudo chown -R Evveric ~/.julia”. But I can not understand where I am supposed to run it? Is it in the REPL? in CMD? Or maybie in the “Run” window? Because none of them seem to work, with or without the “$”. So could you tell me where to run this command? I am running windows 10

That line is a UNIX/Linux command and will not run in Windows. It changes the file ownership of everything in the directory tree.
