Unable to install Photoshop Elements 2019 on Macbook Pro

I just received my copy of Photoshop Elements 2019 yesterday and ran into an issue where I got an Error Message stating: "The installation cannot continue as the installer file may be damaged. Download the installer file again."

 

I tried downloading the program from Adobe and got the same error message.

 

I have Macbook Pro from around 2012.  It's running Mojave with an SSD.

 

Not really sure how to proceed.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I wanted to thank everyone for their suggestions. Unfortunately, none of them worked. Adobe Tech support even tried to help out remotely with no luck. Good news! I solved my problem by doing a clean install of OS X Mojave and then installing Photoshop Elements 2019 (with no problems!). My solution may have been a bit labor intensive, but I took this as an opportunity to get rid of a bunch of stuff I haven’t used in a long time. Thanks again!

Is the operating system 64 Bits?

If not, it won't install.

And you are using the Mac download, not the Windows download?

What size is your hard drive and how much free space is there?

I have the install discs. Purchased the box a few days ago. When I got the error message, I downloaded the Mac version, but still got the same message. I have. 1 TB SSD Drive. It’s only half full. More than enough room.
