    This time clean install seems to have worked, so I can now install software the way I used to. I also deleted all unnecessary partitions on disk 1.

    I was hoping to at least find the cause as I haven't encountered something like it before, but sometimes the quickest solution is the best. Again many thanks for the help, I will be marking this as solved.

    (As an aside, I did try fiddling with the permissions, but had zero luck there so it was probably not the cause.)

    Great! Now's the time to create a new disk image- a base image. Then you can update that periodically (smaller and faster).

    We recommend Macrium Reflect (free) + its boot medium + external storage for images.

    Recovery without technical help from (e.g.)
    => disk failure (restore to new disk)
    => ransomware (full backup)
    => unbootable PC
    => lost data (provided it existed when you created and image)
    => 'bad' updates or update failure

    - even user error.
