Not sure about the error you got, but generally if you are installing
things directly into Linux system library areas you'll need root / sudo
to do it. I'm surprised that didn't come up with pycrypto, but it might
be an artifact of other install attempts.
If in doubt, that sounds like good info for an issue on the github issue
tracker for pycryptodome.
