Xamarin Installer Failed at Xamarin.Android with error code 1


I'm installing the Xamarin tools, and when it got to Xamarin Android, I get the following install fail error. What is error code 1, and how do I know how to get around the installation problem?

    I should add I'm using a mac mini. I just bought the computer, and I have done very minimal to it. Also, I don't know much about macs too, so if there are some key setup steps I'm missing, please let me know.
