Error message when installing Ganache

I get the following when trying to install Ganache:
npm WARN checkPermissions Missing write access to /Users/your_user/npm-global/lib/node_modules/ganache-cli

npm WARN checkPermissions Missing write access to /Users/your_user/npm-global/lib/node_modules

Can anyone help me fix this?

This is definitely a permissions error. Here’s a link to the documentation on fixing this.
