What version of Go are you using (go version)?

$ go version
go version go1.14.3 darwin/amd64

Does this issue reproduce with the latest release?

I don't know, this is the first time I use go

What operating system and processor architecture are you using (go env)?

What did you do?

I installed go package and filled instructions and then :
go get golang.org/dl/go1.10.7

I had this result:
go get golang.org/dl/go1.10.7: mkdir /somewhere: permission denied

What did you expect to see?

installed go1.10.7 in case I needed when I started to automate

What did you see instead?

go get golang.org/dl/go1.10.7: mkdir /somewhere: permission denied

Your go env output shows that GOBIN is set to GOBIN="/somewhere/else/bin".

go get is trying to create that path and failing because you do not have permission to modify the root directory.

Try setting GOBIN to a directory that already exists or is somewhere that you control.

See above. Closing, I don't think there's anything more to do here.
