Newest v5 install script bugged/not functioning

Just today (December 3), I downloaded the newest install script and it is throwing errors as soon as it starts running.

Here is the output on Debian 9

Usage: sed [OPTION]... {script-only-if-no-other-script} [input-file]...

  -n, --quiet, --silent
                 suppress automatic printing of pattern space
  -e script, --expression=script
                 add the script to the commands to be executed
  -f script-file, --file=script-file
                 add the contents of script-file to the commands to be executed
                 follow symlinks when processing in place
  -i[SUFFIX], --in-place[=SUFFIX]
                 edit files in place (makes backup if SUFFIX supplied)
  -l N, --line-length=N
                 specify the desired line-wrap length for the `l' command
                 disable all GNU extensions.
  -E, -r, --regexp-extended
                 use extended regular expressions in the script
                 (for portability use POSIX -E).
  -s, --separate
                 consider files as separate rather than as a single,
                 continuous long stream.
                 operate in sandbox mode.
  -u, --unbuffered
                 load minimal amounts of data from the input files and flush
                 the output buffers more often
  -z, --null-data
                 separate lines by NUL characters
      --help     display this help and exit
      --version  output version information and exit

If no -e, --expression, -f, or --file option is given, then the first
non-option argument is taken as the sed script to interpret.  All
remaining arguments are names of input files; if no input files are
specified, then the standard input is read.

GNU sed home page: <>.
General help using GNU software: <>.
./ line 51: s/./*/5: No such file or directory
./ line 323: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
./ line 323: `                echo "deb stretch main" > '

On CentOS 7

/usr/src/ line 105: syntax error near unexpected token `&&'
/usr/src/ line 105: `&& [ "$ACCEPT" != "NO" ]; do'

I went ahead and used an older one I downloaded about a month ago to install version 5. No problems with that version

Hello @KNERD , Good day
Hope you are doing fine.

I checked and found out that the script has not been changes since last 6 months. It seems some manual error(copy paste). If you are using Windows, please try to use different editor.

Thank you
