Apple have changed the way that they package their old installers.
It's a bit involved but fairly easy to achieve though.

Download and install Pacifist.
Right click on InstallMacOSX.dmg and select Open with Pacifist.
In Pacifist locate the Install OS X El Capitan.app and drag it into Finder - Applications.
Follow the prompts.
Once complete close Pacifist and run UniBeast.

That might be an expired security certificate.
Change the system date to the same as the date of the install app.

You can download El Capitan here .
When you come to the installation screen go to the utility then terminal . In terminal type this
" date 000001012016 " to change the system date . Quit terminal and then you can install it easily .
