Problem building ROOT 6.12/04 on ubuntu 16.04

Dear ROOTers,
I am trying to build the new version of ROOT 6.12/04.
I have recently reinstall my Lenovo laptop with a fresh version of Ubuntu 16.04 and wanted to get the latest ROOT.
In building from source with cmake I have gotten down to the full build stage.
In the installation stage, the install fails with

– Up-to-date: /home/iftah/Work/ROOT6/root-6.12.04_installation/include/root_std_complex.h
CMake Error at core/clingutils/cmake_install.cmake:50 (file):
file INSTALL cannot find
Call Stack (most recent call first):
core/cmake_install.cmake:58 (include)
cmake_install.cmake:193 (include)

Makefile:137: recipe for target ‘install’ failed
make: *** [install] Error 1

I have looked at previous posts about ABI and gcc version, but I was under the impression that this is now fixed.

Please advise.
Thank you

Instead of building your own binaries, download and unpack the ready-to-use binaries for your “Ubuntu 16 gcc5.4” system (provided by the ROOT team).
