STARDOG_HOME '/var/opt/stardog/' is not writeable error for latest image

I am trying to use stardog in ubuntu machine. I pulled the latest image but it keeps giving me this error:
STARDOG_HOME '/var/opt/stardog/' is not writeable by the current user

I found one similar discussion on the forum about it but couldn't solve it following the instruction, still getting the same error. What is the best solution for it?

You can do this with

Hope this helps

This error means that the user that is starting Stardog does not have sufficient permissions to write to that directory. You can give them permission to do so via commands such as chown and chmod depending on how you administer your system.
