If you downloaded a binary, no need to run make.

If you downloaded the source, make sure you have
all the prerequisites for running make. In Ubuntu,
this would get you all the prerequisites for Sage and
some of its optional packages.

    sudo apt install binutils gcc g++ gfortran make m4 perl tar git \
      openssl libssl-dev texlive texlive-latex-extras dvipng ffmpeg \
      imagemagick tk tk-dev libcurl-dev perl-tk

It would be helpful to know more about your operating system.
