I have heard that if the languge of the software does not allign with the O/S languge setting then you get this error.  Make sure they are the same, and if you need to the change the O/S language setting, make sure you restart the device before try installing again.

I would try to get a new version of the ISO, I did a lot of crosslanguage installs and I never got this error tbh.
i think your problem is a corrupted copy of the installation setup , plz make sure that u have a good copy or download the setup again
