in order to install Big Sur I had to make a ton of space on my computer and deleted Adobe PDF because it was taking up almost half a GB of space and I figured I could reinstall it after completing the software update. Now here it says that "Acrobat Reader DC, Acrobat DC, Acrobat 2020, and Acrobat 2017 are compatible with macOS Big Sur (version 11)", but I can't seem to install it at all (which is also not surprising because here it doesn't actually give you the app for big Sur). Ive tried installing the latest versions but they always get stuck on "Running package scripts...".
Any ideas or workarounds? I reaally need to use Adobe PDF for university, as they use FileOpen to encrypt the files and I have no other way of opening these files (the FileOpen app for iPad has not been working since September either) that I desperately need for my coursework. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I think the big mistake here was installing Big Sur so early. This pain happens every Mac upgrade. It takes app makers time to catch up - sometimes months, and sometimes never. If apps are important, check all of them for compatibility. Never install quickly on a machine where you have work to do - the work is more important than the new gadgets. Perhaps you can roll back or use dual boot through a separate app. (By the way, Adobe PDF isn't an app, so we aren't sure what specific app you are trying to install; if you can be more specific, there might be a trick).
