Possible Activation issues
If the .dmg file is already present in the download folder, the Mcafee installer may mount and try to install this previous version of the security on your Mac. This issue is caused due to the older version of your McAfee security that cannot be used without the product code.
 
Workaround:
Rename any McAfee Installation .dmg files in the Downloads folder before downloading the new package. This will ensure that only the latest version available is installed. To rename the file, change the extension from .dmg to anything else, for example, .dm_.
