Hello,

this joomla error doesn't help very much :(

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

This is the Joomla installers cryptic way of telling you there was a permissions problem. You might have changes 1 or a few files by hand and the Joomla installer cannot remove/overwrite the file(s).

You can try to uninstall Kunena in the Joomla extensions manager and then do a fresh install. (As always: backup highly recommended!)

no - everything will stay as it is kept in the database. Still backup - just to be safe.

no - don't use the reinstall it will give you the very same error

also don't use the remove feature in the Kunena installer, as it will remove all the database data.

Use the Joomla installer, uninstall Kunena and install it again. (might want to check in the file system if the uninstall truly removed the com_kunena folder in components and administration.

Any one file that got changed manually (permissions) can cause that.
