NOTE: You cannot install Magento using the Setup Wizard because the Magento setup directory cannot be accessed.
You can install Magento using either the command line or you must restore access to the following directory: /var/www/html/setup
If you are using the sample nginx configuration, please go to http://ce.mtf03.bcn.magento.com/setup/";i:1;s:641:"#0 /var/www/html/lib/internal/Magento/Framework/App/Http.php(213): Magento\Framework\App\Http->redirectToSetup(Object(Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap), Object(Exception))

Workaround

Append /setup to the URL by which you access the Setup Wizard or install the Magento software using the command line.
