I recently uninstalled origin as it was messing with my games, however, today I tried reinstalling it and everytime I try to install it I get a screen saying
"Whoops - the installer encountered an error. Please quit and restart the installation. You'll be up and running in no time. Help can be found here: https://download.dm.origin/live/OriginSetup.exe Error codes 20:2"
This message shows everytime on the install screen, have tried about 5 times reinstalling now. Help link is broken aswell. Any help?

The easy way,go in Safe Mode with Networking and install Origin https://www.origin.com/en-ie/download

Thanks for helping, origin downloaded fine on safe mode
Several other solutions have been called out in this thread - I would advise to read through the entire thread.
i am having the same problem i have been trying for 4 days to download i have went into safe mode disabled everything and it still doesnt work
Can you confirm you ran the installer as an Administrator (right click, run as Admin.), particularly if you are on Windows 10. Thanks.
I ran into this problem on my own machine today.
I uninstalled Origin and attempted to install it fresh but kept encountering the error.
I noticed that my machine was low on drive space, so I uninstalled some unnecessary programs and restarted the machine.
After that, the Origin install worked fine for me and I was able to log into Origin.
(I sent my info over to Origin team.)
Maybe clearing some file space and reinstalling Origin might resolve it for you as well?
