I do a lot of testing in the 9tee4 environment and hence not being able to build arvados-cwl-runner with my code updates is a blocker for me.

I see the following error when I try to rebuild:

(venv)1!radhika@shell.9tee4:~/arvados/sdk/cwl$ python setup.py install 
running install
error: can't create or remove files in install directory

The following error occurred while trying to add or remove files in the
installation directory:

    [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/test-easy-install-31546.write-test'

The installation directory you specified (via --install-dir, --prefix, or
the distutils default setting) was:


Perhaps your account does not have write access to this directory?  If the
installation directory is a system-owned directory, you may need to sign in
as the administrator or "root" account.  If you do not have administrative
access to this machine, you may wish to choose a different installation
directory, preferably one that is listed in your PYTHONPATH environment

For information on other options, you may wish to consult the
documentation at:


Please make the appropriate changes for your system and try again.
