Installer hange trying ot install Python on Mac OS X Catalina

I have been trying to install Python on my Mac (Catalina 10.15.7). When I click on the installation link it gets as far as my accepting the license term and then hangs forever. Activity monitor shows the installer app as “not responding”. Has anyone seen this issue? I don’t know if this is the right place to post this question and if not I apologize. Thanks
