An extract of the error:

INFO [2017-02-17 14:26:49,886] [main]: unpacking map to maps\cache\download\ball_midnight_pb.altx

So yeah, an intermitent permissions problem. One possibility is a hard drive issue.
Another is windows being stupid -- maybe try disabling UAC (Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts -> 'Change user account control settings' and move the slider to the bottom).

edit: My first thought was that some file path was exceding windows' limit, but that's not the case here at least.

edit2: If disabling UAC works, it might be worth narrowing it down to the specific feature of UAC, as it doesn't seem to be recomended that you run without it for a long time. One particular stack overflow answer suggests that setting "EnableLUA" to 0 in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Policies\System" would allow administrators to access all files without a UAC popup, which might be what the problem is (UAC needs your explicit permission before it will let you access the files, but since it's alttiude trying to access them, rather than explorer, it just doesn't show the UAC prompt and denies it by default..)
