Please elaborate on the "get to the point to use Git".
You present the error message but omit the action which produces it.
The error message itself lacks enough hints about its context.
For instance, to me, it looks like an attempt to create a so-called
filesystem link /usr/bin/git pointing to (hence "to" in the error
message) /usr/bin/git-system while working with a normal, non-admin,
user's credentials, and non-admins do not have write permissions on
the /usr/bin directory which contains "system" files which are not to
be modified by users.
