This error usually occurs when you are upgrading/overwriting an existing install of Domino. The error should happen when the system is trying to write a specific file. That file is most likely already on the server, and it is locked for some reason. Hence, you cannot overwrite it. I would suggest trying to rename the file, since you are going to overwrite it anyway. If that can't happen (file is locked), make sure the Domino system isn't set to restart automatically after a reboot, and reboot the server. When the server is back on, rename the file in question. You should be able to complete the install.
