    I have a MacPro 2009 - Siera OS 10.12.5.

    I am trying to install Python 3.6.5 but no joy.
    I tried opening in Finder (open. open with) but it keeps saying
    “python-3.6.5-macosx10.9.pkg” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash."

    only option is to cancel or move to trash.

    what do I have to do to install?

    I Googled, and all videos show just click and run the installer.
    but it won't do it on my machine.

    Any idea?

    Sorry if it had been asked but I can't replicate what they say. It just won't let me pass the above message.

    Do I need to run something called Homebrew?

    Solved it. You need to disable the gate keeper.

    sudo spctl --master-disable


    then sudo spctl --master-enable

    working fine. trivial but I am new to both MAC and Python.
