There may be some confusion on your part with regard to 99.3. There were two 
beta releases of 0.99.3 which have been discussed here over several months, but 
have now been withdrawn in order to release a different 0.99.3 which is almost 
only a security release with a couple of minor bug fixes. AFAIK, there have 
been no major issues with that release beyond installation problems such as you 
are having. 

I suspect the right answer in your case is to pressure the OS distributor to 
quickly integrate the current 0.99.3 release into something you can install 
ASAP, before those now public vulnerabilities can be exploited.
