Whoever wrote this shell script does not know what they're doing.  You've
uncovered 2 bugs in it already.  There are probably a few hundred more.

As a workaround, because you do not have direct access to the script
(apparently it's in the downloaded payload), you may have to change
your /bin/sh symlink to point to bash instead of dash.  You may either
leave it there, or change it back, after this is done.

I would give serious consideration to finding a non-broken alternative
to whatever this thing is, except there probably isn't any alternative,
and you're stuck with it.

It came from the Biovia web site.
