initial version

The archive sage-8.9-Ubuntu_18.04-x86_64.tar.bz2, which you have downloaded, contains a binary version of SageMath, ready to run on Ubuntu 18.04. So there is no need to run make (*). Simply do

cd SageMath

to run SageMath in console mode, or

./sage -n jupyter

to run it in a Jupyter notebook.

(*) make probably failed in your case because some prerequisites to build from source are missing.
