I was watching a module 3 in Training. When I type and enter tar xvzf splunk-8.0.3-a6754d8441bf-Linux-x86_64.tgz -C /opt
following the video. It shows an error (tar: splunk: Cannot mkdir: Permission denied). How can I fix this issue?

Hi

You can try sudo tar...

You can either ask for permission, or you can extract it to another folder in which you have permission to write, e.g., ~/opt instead of /opt

Hi

It seems you don't have proper permissions. You need sudo permissions or contact a system administrator
