Sitecore Experience Commerce - Access to package denied during installation

During the installation of Sitecore Experience Commerce on my local machine, the following error appeared a few times referencing a number of packages:
Access to the path 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\\sitecore\admin\Packages\Sitecore.Commerce.Engine.Connect.2.0.495.update' is denied. 
This one was an interesting one, the installation script was expecting Sitecore.Commerce.Engine.Connect.2.0.495.update however I had Sitecore.Commerce.Engine.Connect.2.0.497.update. The script would create a folder called Sitecore.Commerce.Engine.Connect.2.0.495.update in the packages directory (of the IIS website) and then throw the error above.

This can either be fixed up by renaming the file to match that of the script or by updating the script. It's not actually a permissions issue.
