New to Mycroft - problems during install

Installed using git clone from git clone
installed via ./ and even ran update-dev, but either way, the CLI will not start.

During initial ./dev_setup I receive an error for .git/configure permission denied.
Additionally at start-mycroft cli I get:
virtualenvs… error
activate… not found.
starting CLI…
and then back to prompt.

Ubuntu 16.04

have tried with Fedora, Ubuntu Desktop 17, Ubuntu Server 16, etc and still receive similar errors.

Any Help?

Did you run any of it sudo’d? Where there any errors when you ran If you run “workon mycroft” does that also throw an error?
