We have downloaded the agent from APM SAAS and agent version is We  need to upgrade our MQ agent from 9.x and 10.x to this version so it can be migrated to the APM SAAS environment. MQ Agent is running with two users which pulls all the information of QMGRs fro their respective servers. We need to run and test this agent with these users only. But when we try to run the APMIA installer with the command " to ./APMCtrl install user=apmuser" this gives errorYou must  as "error “Must be root to perform this action”. 

The on-premise environment of APM is running with 10,7 currently.

Kindly look into it and let us know how it can be resolved.
