Munki error “ERROR: Adobe Setup error: 79: Unknown error”

I prepared a nice little Adobe Acrobat Pro package for Munki, and I tried to install it and got this error (ERROR: Adobe Setup error: 79: Unknown error).

Turns out, that isn't a Munki error at all:
Re: [munki-dev] CS6 package wont install > Adobe Setup Error: 79

It has to do with some processes running in the background that prevent the installation from going through. I rebooted my computer (didn't launch up any other programs), ran it again, and all was good.
