I finished installing bootstrap now I get this error when I run make

CMake Error: Cannot open file for write: /home/aleksa/cmake-3.17.3/Source/kwsys/CMakeFiles/cmsys_c.dir/depend.make.tmp
CMake Error: : System Error: Permission denied
make[2]: *** [Source/kwsys/CMakeFiles/cmsys_c.dir/build.make:207: Source/kwsys/CMakeFiles/cmsys_c.dir/depend] Error 2
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:1676: Source/kwsys/CMakeFiles/cmsys_c.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:183: all] Error 2

Any next steps would be greatly appreciated.

Hmm. More information would be required. Are there any system logs about that file (e.g., SELinux). Other than that, a permission error at this step is quite odd.

It worked when I put sudo in front of make, it asked for my password and I was able to complete the download process

That is…very odd. What stopped you from writing to your own home directory like that?
