Google install fails. Package Cache Error?

Google and Google Earth fail on install. This Windows 7 computer has been running both for years with no problems until a few weeks ago. Then Google started complaining that it couldn't install updates.

So I tried a manual install and after a period of downloading files it gives this error message:

Updating or installing Google Earth Pro gives the same symptoms and error message.

A bunch of searching seems to point to the Package Cache at

c:\ProgramData\Package Cache

But ownership and permissions for that folder look OK and match my laptop that also runs Windows 7.

Any ideas on what is going on here?
