Sitecore package installation never ends

The Sitecore Package Designer is a great way to share content between environments and developers. One annoying error is that on installation of a package it will never end. Upon checking the content structure you will also notice that no content has been installed.

In Sitecore 8+ you will encounter this error if the Sitecore instance is unable to connect to MongoDB. The following will usually be present throughout the logs:
Exception: System.NullReferenceException
Message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Source: Sitecore.Analytics.MongoDB

Simply installing MongoDB and having it running (and configured correctly in the connection strings) will allow the package installer to complete installation as expected.
