I already replied to this question 6 days ago!

You cannot, I repeat CANNOT, copy the file to /usr/local/bin as a
regular user, I repeat REGULAR USER.
If you login as root*, I repeat ROOT, then you should be able to copy
then file. Just to stress the fact that this should is not a
possibility, is a certainty.
So... just do the command:

then put the password to root and then copy the file. If you want more
details, read my reply from 6 days ago!
