VMPlayer won't install on Debian 10.1

Here is what I get when I try to install VMPlayer on Debian 10.1 :

root@debian:/home/matu/Téléchargements# bash VMware-Player-15.5.0-14665864.x86_64.bundle

Extracting VMware Installer...done.

Installing VMware Player Application 15.5.0bora/lib/string/str.c:284 Buffer too small

VMware Workstation Error:

VMware Workstation unrecoverable error: (host-2311)

You can request support.

To collect data to submit to VMware support, choose "Collect Support Data" from the Help menu.

You can also run the "vm-support" script in the Workstation folder directly.

We will respond on the basis of your support entitlement.

Same problem with the installation script :

./getplayer-linux

It usually stops at 61% of the progress bar and throws this message.
You don't see the 61% bar because i already tried to install it before, i just relaunched the installation to paste the result here.
I can't file a request support from VMPlayer because it is not installed.
