Please see the following reply for instructions on how to troubleshoot: https://community.splunk.com/t5/Installation/Install-issue-on-Server-2016/m-p/540173/highlight/true#...
If you are installing on Linux and using a non-root user it can fail because /opt is owned by root.
Try using sudo or the root user, or create a /opt/splunk subdirectory and chown it to splunk:splunk.
