Attempting to manually install VSE 1.7.1 on a RedHat 5.8 server. I receive the following errors:

I was able to push this version of Virusscan to an indentical RedHat server via ePO, but this server would not install. Thus, I tried to do the manual install and received the errors above.
Any ideas on what could be causing this?
Is "ed" installed??
yum install ed
"ed" is already installed and up-to-date. The installer still fails with the error in the original post.
Could it be something with BASH? Maybe it needs to be reinstalled?
SOLVED!!!!! Evidently, it's a very BAD thing to untar/unzip your installation package on a Windows workstation and then copy it to your Linux server. The installer script is written in Notepad format, something BASH can't follow.
I deleted all instances of the package off the server, copied the tar file to /tmp, un-tar'ed the file ON the Linux server, and the installation ran AND completed without issue.
