    I had a Apple Developer account last year when I had installed El Capitan Beta to one of our Mac and then my account has expired and now El Capitan Stable has been released.

    I have tried downloading it from Mac App Store 3 times and it says , "AN Error has Occured" After the last few seconds of the installation.

    So what could it be ?

    Make sure to search and destroy any Install OS X El Capitan.app that may be lingering, on any drive, folder, or partition, then verify which update catalog you are using:

    Code:
    sudo defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL
    The following will return you to the production catalog:

    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/softwareupdate --set-catalog https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-10.11-10.10-10.9-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.gz
    or (though I have not tried, personally):

    Code:
    sudo /usr/sbin/softwareupdate --clear-catalog
    I had a similar problem last week, and @Pike R. Alpha helped me get it straight.
