The installer warns that the install might fail and the install fails indeed.

How to repeat:
try to install mysql-utilities-1.5.6-osx10.9.dmg under OSX 10.11.2 (el capitan), the last os version as of today.

Workaround: hold the control key, click the pkg file (e.g., mysql-utilities-x.y.z.pkg), click "Open", then click "Open" again.

I am having the same issue.  My version of OS X is 10.11.5.  I attempted the workaround and get the same error.

The workaround as suggested by Philip Olson doesn't work for the reported issue at all. Installation still fails on OS X 10.11 (in my case 10.11.5). In fact, that workaround is just a way to circumvent Gatekeeper so installation can start, but that's not the issue here.

I have tried the beta (1.6.3) as well. Unfortunately the beta doesn't work either even though it's supposed to be compatible with 10.11. Same problem. :-(

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Utilities 1.6.4 release, and here's the changelog entry:

Installation packaging code was modified to function with Mac OS X 10.11
(El Capitan). Installation no longer fails, and users can now install
MySQL Utilities on El Capitan.

Thank you for the bug report. Sorry for the misinformation earlier.
