Make sure to add S3 Full access to the IAM user before running the AWS CLI Command.

You can achieve this in following ways:

1. Create a customized s3 full access policy and assign to the IAM user .

2. Run the following command from your AWS CLI.

command : C:\Users\kesavan>aws s3 mb s3://bucketname
make_bucket: bucketname

You must check with the permission of your IAM User. This error specifically generated when your user wont have access to create a bucket.
