First time user getting error setting up directory

Hi @tmwilco! The message you quoted is a generic error that does not tell us what went wrong for you.

The two main things that help are what command you were running, and (all) the errors you see. The easy way to supply both is attach the log file (the path to the log file is included in the error output).
