I am trying to generate index files for hg38 genome using STAR using this command:
STAR --runThreadN 24 --runMode genomeGenerate --genomeDir /data/star_38/star --genomeFastaFiles hg38.fasta
the process while running seems to be normal as it is shown here:
STAR --runThreadN 24 --runMode genomeGenerate --genomeDir /data/star_38/star --genomeFastaFiles hg38.fasta STAR version: 2.7.9a compiled: 2021-05-04T09:43:56-0400 vega:/home/dobin/data/STAR/STARcode/STAR.master/source Dec 28 11:23:53 ..... started STAR run !!!!! WARNING: Could not move Log.out file from ./Log.out into /data/star_38/star/Log.out.

I tried different locations to make sure it's not due to memory but got the same error. do you know what the problem could be?
