Dear Richard,

I had the exact same issue.
I looked at the logs as suggested by Jeffrey and realized that the problem
was caused at the installation of the loopback adapter.
I figured out that I had to install MS Loopback Adapter before openafs.
I followed the steps indicated here:
And finally I was able to install openafs without problem.

Problem fixed - at least for me.
I hope it helps you and others having the same issue.

All the best,
