Right now this is occurring at the point of installation utilizing SEPS version 14.2_RU2 on Catalina Machines. (My Environment is Catalina Only, Haven't tested on older OS)
So test your deployment / symantec installations out to see if you get this.
It is flagged at a temporary location
You cannot get past the screen until you remove the UninstallerTool.
I believe we must update the package installer & update all current machines by March 30th.
No official documentation (as far as I know) from Symantec / Broadcom.
Matt on slack provided his workaround : https://macadmins.slack.com/archives/C09MMQVH6/p1583914412251600?thread_ts=1582931159.076000&cid=C09...

Following this... I have a lot of machines on 10.13.x and 10.14.x.
I hope that doesn’t affect older Symantec engines. The newest installer with 10.15 is an abject disaster. I’m able to get it installed and deployed, but it is a CPU hog worse than usual. Luckily Catalina isn’t going to get serious in my org until summer.

We are seeing this in testing of the 14.2_RU2 client on 10.15.3. Broadcom has been completely useless on the support front, and a real fix for this doesn't look like it will be available until Q3. Time to look at other (non-KEXT/SEXT) having AV products methinks...

@dgreening, keep an eye on Jamf Protect. While it's still very new, kextless is the direction Jamf is pursuing.

"Symantec will address this issue fully in 14.3.
By then everyone will have moved on to Crowdstrike. ;)
