Hello everyone,

I'm trying to update from El Capitan to Sierra, but it gives me an error like this in the middle of the update:
Code:
Feb 18 14:49:15 MacBook-Pro Unknown[481]: 2017-02-18 14:49:15.916 macOS Installer[506:19274] *** Terminating app due to uncaught exception 'NSRangeException', reason: '*** -[__NSArrayM objectAtIndex:]: index 1 beyond bounds [0 .. 0]'

I've attached the full log to this message. By looking at the stack trace, I can say that it has something to do with my home directory (I've never touched my home directory - so I have no idea how or why). Here are some of the last items of the stack trace:
Code:

I really need some help here. Thank you so much in advance.

* My machine is an early 2015 Macbook Pro (Intel i5 2,7 GHz - 8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 - Intel Iris 6100)

Maybe it could be a good idea to create a bootable USB stick and make a fresh install via recovery partition.

It's not an option for me. I don't have a big enough USB stick and I don't want to install all my stuff (literally hundreds of things) from scratch.

Here's the latest error log:

Does anyone have any idea why it gives me this error?
