Hello, I have this problem and I don't know what to do. I saw a problem related with a zip file so I installed 7zip (my computer didn't have a third party compressing software), anyway it didn't help, I don't know if it's a permission problem or what could it be.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!.

I notice there is a space in the directory name "Juan Henao". Historically some of the MATLAB tools have problems dealing with spaces in directory names (or non-ASCII characters in directory names.)
Oh, that's a good point, let me try to change that. Thanks for taking the time!

Problem solved.
For the record: It was disk space problem (a dumb one), hope this helps someone else.

Hello Juan, I have exactly the same problem as you due to a disk space problem. How did you change the path to write entry to this Install Agent files ?

I've seen a similar problem and it is unclear, but it appears sporadically. Yes, it could be disk space as well, but I think it might be something else.
This is with mcc compiler version 6.5 (2017B). However, I am seeing a similar issue as above. I think it is intending to write to a path with "/a/b/c.mexa64", but the error message at least only mentioned "a/b/c.mexa64" ... notice the missing slash that is leading the filepath.
Here's the exact error with the path modified for privacy.
Error in writing CTF file entry 'prj/c/w/file.mexa64'. Details: 'Could not write zip entry'
Failed to build CTF file: '/prj/c/w/cmd.ctf'.
Perhaps someone at Mathworks could take a close look to see if the leading slash being dropped is expected or not.
Error using mmm2 (line 3)
Error executing mcc, return status = 1 (0x1).
