you need to be root to use getinstall
sudo getinstall

Welcome to Linux Questions.

If the packages are "rpm" packages, this command
will do : first type 'su' + type the root password
...next : rpm -Uvh blender.....
( Use full package name )

Installing a package with a different suffix, please
show the package name.

And I have never seen a command by name "getinstall"

"permition deeided" is an usual response - I assume that's a localized string, meaning something like 'permission denied' maybe.
AFAIK has Blender also tarballs for installation, that can be unpacked anywhere, so you don't need root privileges to run it - either run it by full pathname to the blender executable, or add the location to your $PATH

Debian

Yes, open a terminal window, any, and try the
