ROS Kinetic - catkin_make install fails

I am new to ROS Kinetic. To learn more, I have been going through the tutorials provided by the ROS website ( http://wiki.ros.org/ROS/Tutorials ) and have been doing fine up until creating a ROS msg and srv. At the final step where one needs to remake the catkin_ws package with the command catkin_make install, I am given the following output on the terminal:

allen@allen-VirtualBox:~/catkin_ws$ catkin_make install

I don't understand why the ...installspace/_setup_util.py file can't be copied. I didn't do anything with the file. I have looked at the cmake_install.cmake lines of code that result in the error and see nothing wrong:

54  file(INSTALL DESTINATION "/usr/local" TYPE PROGRAM FILES

The file cannot be copied because your install space is /usr/local only users with roo permissions can copy in that directory.

The problem here is that catkin_make is trying to install your package to /usr/local instead of Install space: /home/allen/catkin_ws/install.

Can you try the following commands in a new terminal and comment here with the outcome?:
1) Open a new terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T)
2) cd /home/allen/catkin_ws
3) rm -rf build devel install
4) source /opt/ros/kinetic/setup.bash
5) catkin_make install

I don't know why, but I was unable to submit my full response as a comment. I had reached the "maximum characters for a comment". Thus, I placed my reply to your suggestion as an answer. I hope the output is useful.

Are you able to still help?

I have fixed the issue! I had some Make files within my .src folder in catkin_ws that were not supposed to be there. Once I had deleted them, I rebuilt catkin_ws with catkin_make and later catkin_make install. Everything was built correctly and my issue was gone.
