As a general rule, the deployment should include the installation, why in the openstack differentiate out the installation and deployment?

see the docs:

Installation tutorials install OpenStack without any deployment tool apart from the usual package managers yum, apt and zypper. Their goal is learning about OpenStack, not creating a production cloud.

The deployment guides use a deployer and can be used for setting up production systems.

This guide is not intended to be used for production system installations, but to create a minimum proof-of-concept for the purpose of learning about OpenStack.
