Answers :

A password is required to install anything on Linux, in order to prevent any malware or unauthorized users from doing harm. In order to install the program you wish, you will need to enter your password, which is the password you used to log in to Linux. I am assuming your account has sufficient privileges. If you set up an administrator, root, or su (superuser) password when you first booted up Linux, enter that password.
