Summary0006059: SU - install issue
DescriptionI did read the new rollout and downloaded the VMware package. However, with the new permissions, I'm unable to run new installations. Even with the password-less root right, I'm unable to continue. As a Nuub, I apologize if this is an easy fix. See attached.

"sudo foo && bar" runs "foo" as root but "bar" as normal user.

So try "sudo apt update && sudo apt install code".
