I have always installed Openstack Pike version earlier, but now I am trying to download Openstack Ussuri version in Ubuntu 18.04 but unable to do so and after running for 5 mins it shows Permission denied while instaling the required packages. Also, sometimes it showed error that it is unable to install the os-testr package distribution. Can someone help on this.

You download it from where? How do you run it? Which command leads to "permission denied"?

Permission is denied to do what?

Might be a problem in your local.conf, or perhaps the user that runs has no password-less sudo. I am speculating because I don't know your configuration and error details.

OK, so permission to do something is denied. This is not enough information to help you.
