Hey @MiltosKtl, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

Could you try downloading the installer from here?

Once it's downloaded try to move it to Desktop, the right click on it. When the menu appears hover over Open With and click Open.


Before you do that please check for any leftovers of the system by Spotify and remove them.


Let me know how that goes 🙂

Hey there @gphoebe


Thanks for reaching out to the Community about this. 


We can confirm the link provided by @Loxer is a legit one and it gets you to the correct file on the Spotify-website. 


Can you also try downloading the setup file from here? It leads to Apple's app store where you can also download the correct setup file. 


Hope this helps. Keep us posted.
