Adobe Reader installs files into the installation file's folder instead of where it's supposed to be

Here's the command I have in the batch file:

msiexec.exe /a AcroRead.msi /p AcroRdrDCUpd1901020069.msp /qb /norestart ALLUSERS=1 EULA_ACCEPT=YES SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES DISABLE_ARM_SERVICE_INSTALL=1 DISABLEDESKTOPSHORTCUT=1

Whenever I run it, it installs the files in the folder where installation files are and not in its proper places. The person who packaged the previous version had:

msiexec.exe /i AcroRead.msi /qb /norestart ALLUSERS=1 EULA_ACCEPT=YES SUPPRESS_APP_LAUNCH=YES DISABLE_ARM_SERVICE_INSTALL=1 DISABLEDESKTOPSHORTCUT=1

But that didn't install anything at all.

I haven't done this, but isn't that what /a is supposed to do? It isn't to install the package so far as I can see. Administrative Installation - Windows applications | Microsoft Docs

Is there a way I can use /i instead of /a and still use the msp file?

Try something basic like this first as a test:

msiexec.exe /i C:\Users\labuser\Desktop\AdobeReaderDC\AcroRdrDC1500720033_en_US.msi /Update C:\Users\labuser\Desktop\AdobeReaderDC\AcroRdrDCUpd1800920050.msp
