You may have finished installing all pre-requisites and it shows a successful message. After this, you move ahead with the setup and restart the machine when required, but still, receive same error. Some confusion.
If you see all messages carefully, it looks like the error is not related to the SharePoint setup and rather the pre-requisites. Re-run the pre-requisites installer and then restart your machine. Now continue with the installation and it should work fine.
