Any help will be highly appreciated.

This issue is within the
pyscf package that is required by qiskit. It says here that this error may occur with certain versions of python, and I have seen it commonly coming up with python 3.8. There are some workarounds in that link, but if you have nothing forcing you to use python 3.8, I would suggest downgrading to the next newest version before that.
I have been running on python 3.7.5 (which you should be able to install by simply specifying
python=3.7 when creating a new anaconda environment) and I do not see this error.
