error installing VMware-vSphere-Perl-SDK-6.5.0-4566394.i386 on Ubuntu 16.04

I have tried to install VMware-vSphere-Perl-SDK-6.5.0 & 6.7.0 – both get the same errors when running vmware-install.pl.



Please wait while copying vSphere CLI files…



Unable to change the access rights of the file /usr/bin/dcli.



Execution aborted.

/usr/lib/vmware-vcli/bin doesn’t have the vmware-dcli directory:

Ideas on what I am doing wrong?
