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:

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.
