I followed Apple instructions for Terminal and permissions. After following the prompts, the first entry under permissions was drwxr-xr-t 13 root wheel. The instructions said it should be drwxrwxrwt; root wheel. Not sure what to do now.
if you are using some kind of security profile on a business machine, it seems to mess up the file permissions in the /tmp/ directory.
use the following command after logging into TERMINAL.
sudo chmod 1777 /tmp/
Thank you! That got me the correct entry. I'll reboot and try to install again.
Yes! Everything is up and running again! Thank you so much.
you're very welcome.
p.s. that's not my discovery. i copied it from another user that found the solution months ago.
