You may got this error if the AWS CLI program file doesn't have "run" permission. On Linux or macOS, ensure that

the aws program has run permissions for the calling user. Typically, the permissions are set to 755.

To add run permission for your user, use the below given command.

 $ chmod +x /root/.local/bin/aws 

Hope this will help.
