    I had to install 2019.3 on my machine, (Don't ask why, just go with it). I used the link on the archive page that will install it though Hub, for whatever reason, this failed. I went to reinstall it, but Unity Hub says that it's already installed. I had Unity hub delete the files, which it displayed an error that it couldn't. I clicked on the show in explorer link, and manually removed the files, and it still shows the install in the list, and the can not delete files message. I should add that after every change/attempt, I have right-clicked on the Unity Hub icon in the system tray and chosen quit Unity Hub. The failed install version still shows in the installed list, I still can't remove it from that list, or reinstall it. Also, Manual installations fail, as it opens Unity Hub, which then says that it's already installed.

    Help?

    Delete downloadProgress%3A2019.3.Xf1.json from Unity Hub config dir (I do not know your OS to specify more precisely)

    thank you so much man, saved my day
    the file 'editors.json' at this folder has the path to all installed versions so relocating them need to also update this file and change the addresses

    Thanks a lot!
    Note for all others: make sure you end UnityHub trough the Task Manager
