If you get the following error whenever running a command - Error reading or writing history file. Its likely PowerShell was installed as root, but you're now running as a standard user, do the following...

sudo pwsh
$refDir = Resolve-Path '~'
$dstDir = Resolve-Path '~/.local/share/powershell'
chown -R --reference=$refDir $dstDir
