I had this error when installing an application on my Apple Silicon Mac M1 I

"There is no application set to open the document 'Instal XYZ.pkg'"

To fix this: select "Choose Application", and go to /System/Library/CoreServices where you select

You still may need to click "Allowed" if the PKG wasn't signed, but at least it will install.
