Just change the  the ownership of the Stata files and directories
recursively.

Assuming that the Stata's directory is found on the path:

/usr/local/stata11/


type:

sudo chmod -R 777 /usr/local/stata11/

Once you exit, you will be able to update Stata using xstata without
needing to log as root.

In any case, you will need to log as root once to change the permissions.

Ulrich's approach does exactly the same task.
