    Managed software installation for macOS —

    To get around this there are two options. 1. Use the DEP package - https://github.com/munki/munki/releases/download/v5.6.2/munkitools_DEP-5.6.2.4398.pkg. Any of the DEP packages in the releases page should work but might as well grab the latest. I can’t find the link at the moment but I believe this just loads the daemons on the postinstall script.
