    It seems that your summary.txt did not make it. Details.txt can also be helpful.

    The error message makes me think that you are in a corporate environment, but since you talk about degree, I assume that this is your private machine. What policy you may have applied, I don't know.

    Running SQL Server on Mac is not that simple, unless you have an x64 machine. (I don't even know if there are Macs on that architecture.) The best choice fo SQL Server on Mac may be Docker. See this thread, and particularly the post from Randolph Est for more information.
