It says no such file or directory, when its clearly shown in the ls command.
Here is what you really need to do:
That will create a BOINC directory directly under where you are. And then you can attach to projects.
BTW, I usually install this in the /home directory of a regular non-root user. You certainly don't need to be root to run boinc and you want to avoid being on the Internet as root. Security concerns.
