I have tried to find a similar discussion on here where some one else has had the problem of the installation not installing any files in the installation directory despite having 755 set as the permission. I do get an install.dir directory created in /tmp but nothing written to /opt/arcgis Here's the output when I run the install:

[mfhssrpk@arcgis ArcGISServer]$ /home/MFHSSRPK/ArcGISServer/ArcGISServer/Setup -m silent -l yes -a /home/MFHSSRPK/ArcGISServer/ArcGISServer/licence.prvc -d /opt/arcgis

It looks like the installer is missing some prerequisite libraries and is failing. What is the OS version? Do you have the required packages according to the system requirements? ArcGIS 10.4.x for Server system requirements—ArcGIS for Server system requirements | ArcGIS Enterpri...

It turns out the /tmp directory was set to "noexec" as a security measure for the VM which is set by IT admin.  Once that was sorted it installed with no problem.
