Hi and thanks you for the quick reply first and foremost but sadly it says: ☢ superuser access required
Please let me know what can be done.

Thanks.

Ok, so you are extremely new to linux.

To get superuser access you need to do this:

Code: Select all

$ su
then type in your superuser password. You'll notice after you log in the '$' will turn into '#'.

Technically 'su' stands for switch user, but when you don't give it any parameters you switch to root (aka super user).
