The cause is not clear. Most likely IIS service is holding the IIS Compression and preventing it from being uninstalled/reinstalled.
Connect to the server via RDP
Stop IIS service:
Warning: Plesk and websites will be offline while IIS is stopped.
C:> iisreset /stop
Manually install the package using the directory from the error message, e.g.
Start IIS service:
C:> iisreset /start
