Cannot add user, all the user directories are read-only.

Hi All,

Followed all the procedures needed for the JIRA local installation start up, however at the time of "Setup Administrator Account" experiencing the below error.

2. Restarted the JIRA server

Highly appreciated, if I can get the resolution for this issue.
