Whenever I try to install Java (8 Update 60) for Mac OS X, it fails. The download is successful and goes to my Downloads, then I open it up, and begin the process: I click continue on the Introduction stage. It skips directly to Installation Type where it informs me that 179.1MB will be required for the install. I click install. It asks for my password. I enter the password and click Install Software (Note that as I begin entering my password, the little rainbow pinwheel begins spinning and replaces the mouse cursor). Within less than a second of clicking Install Software, it reads "Configuring the installation", and then immediately comes up with a large yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the centre, saying "The installation failed. The installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance." I have contacted Apple Support and they were fairly useless, merely telling me to try installing older versions, restarting my MacBook, etc. I even tried to install it in Safe Mode but that had no effect either. It still failed even in Safe Mode. Does anybody have any experience with this issue? I tried Java 8 and some older Java version and both failed.
