Ubuntu server install should 'apt-get clean'

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debian-installer

I've just done a test install of jaunty server amd64, just the basic default install. Everything went well, but the system was using 720 megabytes of disk. After I ran 'apt-get clean', it only used 664 megabytes. I think it would be useful if the installer did that, at least if installing from CD-ROM (in which case we _know_ the .debs are easily available).

This bug was fixed in the package pkgsel - 0.24ubuntu1

pkgsel (0.24ubuntu1) karmic; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Install language packs and language support packages. If this fails,
      install the language-selector update-notifier hook so that the user is
      prompted to install more complete language support after installation.
    - Mark any pending update notifications as seen after installation.
    - Move final sources.list into place before trying to install
      pkgsel/include items and language packs.
    - Remove special popularity-contest handling; Ubuntu just includes it in
    - Divert update-initramfs and call it just once at the end (with
      bind-mounted /dev, /proc, and /sys, and a preceding update-dev).
    - Don't divert scrollkeeper-* any more; we use rarian-compat now and
      Sebastien says it's fast enough.
    - Ask whether the user wants to install updates automatically, using
      either unattended-upgrades or landscape-client. This question is only
      asked at a high enough priority to be displayed on server or netboot
      installations, but may be preseeded on other installations.
    - Allow preseeding pkgsel/install-recommends to install what the
      packages on pkgsel/include Recommend, defaulting to false.
    - Run updatedb at the end of pkgsel, unless pkgsel/updatedb is preseeded
      to false.
  * Run 'apt-get clean' after package installation (LP: #364249).

  [ Frans Pop ]
  * Disable system upgrades for Etch installs as upgrade options used are
    incompatible with the Etch version of aptitude. Closes: #492593.
  * There is no need to run debconf-apt-progress --config as in-target already
    sets the correct environment.
  * Multiply progress steps by 10 in postinst script.
  * Advance progress bar when running pre-pkgsel.d scripts.
