Ich vermute das Problem tritt mit Apple OS Mojave und Catalina immer dann auf, wenn das Betriebssystem auf einer SSD installiert ist. Bekanntlich werden SSD seit Mojave zwangsweise mit dem Apple File Sytem (APFS) formatiert.
Seit Catalina wird das eigentliche Betriebssystem auf einem eigenen, dedizieren und schreibgeschützten Volumen angelegt, das OS selbst ist damit von allen anderen Daten getrennt, was die Zuverlässigkeit von macOS verbessern soll.

Apple hat damit den Systemschutz in macOS 10.15 Catalina auf die nächste Stufe gehoben, indem es das Startvolume in zwei Teile aufteilt. Es erscheint wie ein einzelnes Volume auf dem Desktop, aber es sind wirklich zwei: Eines ist mit dem Namen des Volumes beschriftet, während das andere mit "- Data" versehen ist.
 Hier wird die Ursache für das Verweigern der Installation von CC-Tools liegen, die Installationsroutine versucht auf das erste Volume zuzugreifen bzw. darauf zu schreiben, dies ist aber nicht möglich, es entstehtr der Erros 41 (Fehler beim Zugreifen auf eine kritische Datei/einen kritischen Ordner), das Setup bricht ab.

Der fehler liegt also in der Setup-Routine, die nun komplett umprogrammiert werden sollte!


regards

None of the CC 2019 apps will run on Catalina, because they either are or include 32-bit software and Catalina only runs 64-bit software.

 

If you want to run InDesign on Catalina, you'll have to upgrade to InDesign 2020.
