Failed to update the following components: Steinberg install assistant

Continuing the discussion from SOLVED - Download Assistant update problems:

For me the issue was that I had created a symbolic link and oddly the installer wouldn’t take to it since there were so many large files in /Library/Application Support/Steinberg. The assistant was trying to install in this folder and I had full permissions to the folder with the symbolic link but no luck. Not quite sure why that wouldn’t work since those are more robust then Finder Aliases the computer generally shouldn’t know the difference but clearly there was some permission issues.
