          are you installing on a zone ?  it says 'read-only file system' for /usr which means you cannot write to /usr.  since usr is typcially inherited by a sparse zone, hence the zone question.


          if you are installing in a sparse zone you need to use the -local flag during the install and choose an installation directory that's writeable, like /opt.  there should be a section in the docs about installing on zones.

            From error it looks like the sudo user does not have sufficient permission for  creating /usr/nsh/install_dir.

            You need to provide xw permission on /usr/nsh directory to sudo user.
