Unable to insert data in mysql table at Bigdata labs

Unable to insert data in mysql table at Bigdata labs using below query says permission denied,does it mean i cant change data using insert sql

sqoop eval --connect “jdbc:mysql://nn01.itversity.com/retail_db” --username retail_dba --password itversity --e “INSERT INTO categories values(60,NULL,‘TESTING’)”

you cannot make any changes to the DB retail_db.
i think its only read only.

check for a db retail_export or something like that , (i donot recollect )and you will be able to do update on that DB.
