Bug Description

This time I tried after selecting Swedish time zone (and language). Calamares failed.

External command finished with errors.
Command rm /tmp/calamares-root-dhepyboh/home/*/calamares.desktop finished with exit code 1. Output: rm: cannot remove '/tmp/calamares-root-dhepyboh/home/*/calamares.desktop': No such file or directory

The test in comment #3 was done in BIOS mode ('CSM' selected).

Testing almost the same as in comment #3 (in the Toshiba laptop) but

- in UEFI mode (not secure boot)

- 'Erase disk' (to check with an MSDOS partition table, if Calamares can create an EFI system partition etc). It 'says' that it will create a GPT, an ESP and a root partition ...

This failed with an output similar to bug #1780875.

See the attached screenshot of the error window.

I have reported this as the separate bug #1781015
