It won't carry on installing until you enter your user account password for your Mac, it is waiting for you to authorise OS X to change permissions. It is part of the security built into the operating system. A window should have popped up asking you to enter your password. Is your Mac's user account an admin account or a standard account? You need to be logged in as an administrator to change permissions.
