Happens to me to.

First seen when trying to install 5.2.22.
I abandoned that, cleared things up and re-installed 5.2.20 - which worked OK.

I've just tried installing 6.0.3-BETA3. That suffered this issue too.
I cleared things up (didn't wait for the install to "finish") and tried re-installing 5.2.20. This is also now suffering this issue.
