I ran into the same issue but was able to resolve it. I am installing on CentOS7 with the following:
Virtual Machine on ESXi 6.7, 100GB disk, 4GB RAM, CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1804.iso
1. Selected minimal package install.
2. Disabled security policy.
Logged in as root.
1. Edit /etc/sysconfig/selinux and change to Permissive.
2. yum install wget ntp ntpdate psmisc
3. Set the date using ntpdate command (optional)
4. systemctl disable firewalld
Logged in as root and installed the software.
History was as follows:
4 vi /etc/sysconfig/selinux
5 yum install -y psmisc
8 yum install ntp ntpdate
9 grep pool /etc/ntp.conf
13 ntpdate 0.centos.pool.ntp.org
17 wget https://archive.cloudera.com/cm6/6.0.0-beta1/cloudera-manager-installer.bin
18 ls -ltr
19 chmod +x cloudera-manager-installer.bin
Install completed successfully and I am now proceeding with the rest of the install via browser.
For me I noticed my base install was missing pstree (I saw that error in the log) and there was also a bunch of permissioned denied messages. On the third try I add psmisc and coincidentally disabled the security policy at the start. I believe one of those two may have fixed it. Not sure.
Hope this helps.
