You can run PowerShell on Linux in 'Run as Administrator' mode by running sudo pwsh, that way you can copy the file
Did this work out for you?

@Harm_Veenstra It works out as shown in the follwing figure.


But it reopens a 'pwsh' process to run commands.

How to run commands without restarting a 'pwsh' shell process.

You can start your initial pwsh sessions running it sudo pwsh. This is the same on Windows if you want to do admin things, you have to run PowerShell as Administrator (Right-Click, Run as Administrator)
