can you create  a build directory and do it again?

Hello everyone!

I tried installing nest using cmake version 3.14 on ubuntu.

This is the command I tried from the nest-simulator directory:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/home/bsvogler/Dokumente/nest /home/bsvogler/Dokumente/nest-simulator/nest

I get the following two error messages and cannot find any information on how to resolve this issue
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:97 (install):
  install TARGETS given no RUNTIME DESTINATION for executable target "nest".

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:106 (FILTER_HEADERS):
  Unknown CMake command "FILTER_HEADERS".

CMake Warning (dev) in CMakeLists.txt:
  No cmake_minimum_required command is present.  A line of code such as

    cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 3.13)

  should be added at the top of the file.  The version specified may be lower
  if you wish to support older CMake versions for this project.  For more
  information run "cmake --help-policy CMP0000".
This warning is for project developers.  Use -Wno-dev to suppress it.

I tried the master branch and the nest3 branch. I need a working nest 3 simulator.
I managed to compile just yesterday but in the meantime, I reinstalled the operating system.

Please help me out.

Kind regards,
