I was trying to install EnergyPlus-9-2-0 on my Mac OS Mojave 10.14 but I encountered an error during the installation. The message I got during the installation says

"Error during installation process (symlinks): Execution Failed (Unexpected exit code:1 ): "In -sf/Applications/ EnergyPlus-9-2-0/energyplus.1/usr/local/share/man/man1"

I can continue the installation but I'm not sure if this error will impact my simulation in the future. If yes, how do fix the problem? Can anyone help me, please?

Did you copy the error message by hand? Because it's clearly wrong. Should be ln (lower L) not In (upper I), and the spacing after is wrong.

This is just trying to create a symbolic link for the "man" page, so you can do man energyplus in a terminal, and shouldn't affect you in any way shape or form aside from that.
