I am unable to open my lightroom: I get the following error message

Lightroom cannot start because it cannot create files in the temporary file location “/var/folders/8n/qcwj50sn0qgfq1rh7s7_t5800000gn/T”.

 

I haven't changed anything on my computer and I am not sure how to fix this.

 

Thank you in advance for any help.
