Indicates an ownership or permissions problem.
Which user did you use for the install? Did you try with sudo?

yes i used sudo, my username is frappe

Depending on your requirements, sometimes you shouldn’t use sudo, but i am not very familiar with custom apps installs. If you have a permissions error, then you might need to check that the files are owned by the correct user

sudo chown frappe:frappe -R /home/frappe

thanks the folder permissions has gone but the rest of the error is still there

Checking connectivity… done.

This (error code 1) is still a permissions error - but within python/pip. I can only suggest that you downgrade to pip v9.03 if your version is 10 or higher.

python -m pip install --user pip==9.0.3

There is some useful info here and tips here

just to add also

  1. cd frappe-bench
  2. source env/bin/activate
  3. python -m pip install pip==9.0.3

downgrade the pip version of the virtualenv also to 9.0.3
