We ran into the same problem with Faronics AV and traced it down to windows defender being the problem.  One way to trouble shoot this is alt tab to get back to the menu screen and from the main menu choose recovery and via that command window try to hand install it to see what error you get.

I added these to lines in a task prior to the AV install task to shut down windows defender

make sure a reboot happens in between the tasks

reg add HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WinDefend /v start /t REG_DWORD /d 4 /f
reg add HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender /v DisableAntiSpyware /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
