The output I already posted was from the -v option. I only posted the part that fails.

So to clarify - we have a Dev host with the IdP software already installed at /opt/shibboleth-idp (files are owned by another user at the moment). I am testing some things with the installer to reliably deploy to other environments with consistent settings - as I don't want to overwrite anything currently happening in Dev at the moment I was deploying to another location (in this case /tmp/shibboleth-idp/). However the installer is still trying to read in the /opt/shibboleth-idp/ - but failing as it exists but does not have permission - I'm not going to give it permissions as it really shouldn't even be trying /opt/shibboleth-idp/ if I have specified an alternative directory.
