    Hi Mass,

    This error mostly appears if there is some issue with the already installed rpm package
    itself, like creating softlink to non-existence path or installing files in non-existing directory.

    To debug further and get  the exact the error is it possible to add "set -x" to the get_rpm_inst_root_list() function in
    /usr/lib/instl/baselib_sh  script and try the commands ?
