Can't deploy the new ENS Threat Prevention for Mac to a Mac running agent

McAfee has released updated ENS products for Mac. We are only using the Threat Prevention component. In my testing, I have been unable to deploy ENS Threat Prevention to a Mac either running 10.12.4 or 10.11.6. These systems have been tested with ENS 10.2.1 installed and without. The deployment of the latest ENS does not install.

Both systems are running with Agent The release notes state that you must have agent 5.0.4 before upgrading to

The strange thing is that if I install the newer agent 5.0.5 then the deployment task will either do an upgrade or a fresh install. Has McAfee testing this product with agent 5.0.4?
