Check if the installer has a log of the install attempt and see whether there is anything there that explains it.  I.e. it might be that it needs a specific set of software installed and during the install when it checks on a required items and does not find it, it generates an error and rollsback.  There is an install package that uses the interrupted message when an install fails versus an error occurred with X.
