Bug Description

Binary package hint: partman-auto

Running through a test install in ubiquity using the replace option, the installer fails to swapoff all swap partitions on the device when using the replace option, causing the installation to fail upon being unable to ask the kernel to re-read the partition table.

  * Disable swap partitions on the same disk before deleting the
    partition in the replace option (LP: #740881).
