This is a unix permission error. If sudo works, try that. Or, do one of the following: choose a different location that you have read/write permission to or modify this area so that you have read/write. Worry about execute permissions at the end of the install.
Once done, be sure that if there is an executable installed, and you want Galaxy to use it, that the "Galaxy user" knows where to find it ($PATH) and has permissions to run it (executable "x" is set).
More about directory permissions can be found many places around the internet with a simple search. Permissions in any computer are a global function, unrelated to Galaxy, and even often unrelated to the shell (or rather, how permissions function are common between modern unix shells).
