Can't install apps via Installer.app (any .pkg file)

10 February 2013 - 03:39 AM

I installed Mountain Lion on my desktop and almost everything is running ok.
My problem is that every time I try to install something via Installer (e.g. a PKG file), the installation fails and get this error message:
"The Installer encountered an error that caused the installation to fail. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance."

Here's the log messages while trying to install the nVidia CUDA drivers:

I googled but I couldn't find the solution for this problem.
It's a very annoying problem because I can't install apps, updates and drivers.

Could someone help me?

Thanks!
