    Download the file using the curl command. The -o option specifies the file name that the downloaded package is written to. In this example, the file is written to AWSCLIV2.pkg in the current folder.
curl "" -o "AWSCLIV2.pkg"
  1. 2.
    Run the standard macOS installer program, specifying the downloaded .pkg file as the source. Use the -pkg parameter to specify the name of the package to install and the -target / parameter for which drive to install the package to. The files are installed to /usr/local/aws-cli, and a symlink is automatically created in /usr/local/bin. You must include sudo on the command to grant write permissions to those folders.
sudo installer -pkg ./AWSCLIV2.pkg -target /
After installation is complete, debug logs are written to /var/log/install.log.
