In macOS Catalina Apple introduced “notarization”, i.e. anything you
install has to have Apple's blessing, otherwise it will refuse to
install and show you a message that it is malware.  Dick Koch,
maintainer of MacTeX ran into the same problems, as he presented at
TUG2019 and described in the corresponding TUGboat article:

I don't use macOS myself, but it seems that the quality of the latest
release is absolutely abysmal.
