### Error when start gazebo

I just reinstalled my virtual machine and ros melodic. When I ran gazebo I got the following error

[Err] [ClientConfig.cc:222] Error copying default configuration file from [/usr/share/ignition/fuel_tools//config.yaml] to [/home/makinohara/.ignition/fuel/config.yaml]

I am really confused about why this would happen since I was following the installation instruction and I have never encountered this before. I did not install ignition either. Why would it cause a problem for me?
