One error was
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/tmp/grass7-roberta-701
4/tmpe7QEso/i.sentinel.mask/scripts/i.sentinel.mask', needed
by `script'. Stop.
/bin/sh: 1: cannot create /usr/lib/grass74/error.log:
Permission denied

i.e. this is a system-wide installation of GRASS 7.4

Can you try again with GRASS 7.5 compiled from source, without installing?
That should avoid the "Permission denied" error.
The GRASS start script is in the source tree in bin.x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
