quickstart-vm-5.7 spark-shell error

I'm following the steps for Tutorial Exercise 3, executing the following command:

[cloudera@quickstart ~]$ spark-shell --master yarn-client

I am getting the following error:

16/07/16 18:13:21 ERROR spark.SparkContext: Error initializing SparkContext. Permission denied: user=cloudera, access=WRITE, inode="/user/spark/applicationHistory":spark:supergroup:drwxr-xr-x


Is there a way to fix this so I can complete the tutorial?
