After downloading the .dmg file and dragging it to my Applications folder, 
I go to it's location via terminal:

cd /Applications/SageMath

Then, when I try to run sage:


I get this error message

ERROR:  The Sage installation tree has moved


  to /Applications/SageMath

This is not supported, and Sage will not work. To install Sage from a

binary package:

1. Open the .tar.bz2 archive (or .dmg on OSX)

2. Move the SageMath folder/app to where you want it to be. You can

   also rename the directory now.

3. Start sage for the first time. This will then automatically patch

   paths in binaries.

After starting Sage for the first time you cannot change the

installation any more. To install Sage elsewhere, start over from the

binary package. Or recompile Sage from scratch in the new location

("make distclean && make")
