Looks like you mess something with dpkg. It can be file permissions if 
you are doing it as root. Files created by root cannot be modified by 
other users. Try doing it as user 'install' via sudo. Or why you don't 
use application installer if you want to install stuff in 
/var/lib/install? The python runtime _is_ installable by application
