I just downloaded PSE 2018 to install on my new computer.  It is a DMG file and nothing happens when I click and try to run it.  I downloaded from the Adobe site.  Their directions say to open the "installer file".  The only file that came down was the PSE program file.  I've tried downloading it twice and I get the same DMG file.  what do I do now?

I have the same problem.
Nothing happens when you open the old version. Nothing happens when you download a new one.
Only Lightroom works.
The operating system is Catelina 10.15.2
