This is actually not your fault, it is a permissions problem that you may or may not have access to repairing. The reason the software fails is that it is creating a new directory and fails. This normally happens when the software doesn't have permission to edit/create files or directories and that is caused by the permission settings the hosting company has in place.

If you call your hosting providers tech support and show them the error they may be able to change the settings for your site allowing the software to have the permissions it needs.

If the hosting provider can't or won't change those settings then you can install the items manually. Which components are you trying to install?
