I am trying to run drush make distro.make but getting the following error. The only thing I can see I did different was ran sudo drush make distro.make once. Any ideas?

copy(/http---updates.drupal.org-release-history-drupal-7.x): failed to open stream: Permission denied drush.inc:840 [warning]

Could not download project status information from http://updates.drupal.org/release-history/drupal/7.x [error]

Non-existent project type on project drupal

previously I was running without sudo and it was working fine.

Problem was that running sudo drush had probably added some unwanted permissions to the cache folder. Deleting the folder solved the problem.
