Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

to reproduce:

have 3 existing partitions
run ubiqutiy, and do manual partitioning
create a new partitoin in blank space on drive, called /
-> installer auto adds your partitions to /media for some irrational reason
try to remove the partitions mountpoint (this is almost a sub bug, because to remove it you have to edit it and remove the string /media/foo, and ubiquity offers you /no/ way to say 'i dont want this mounted')
ubiquity warns it will be unavailable.
it does it for each partition you choose to remove from its control

(carry on a few steps)

when you hit the final 'install' on the summary page, it then warns *again* you dont have the partitions mounted. with a seperate dialauge for each one you removed.

The same thing happens with having no swap (re being warned twice), but thats perhaps more understandable (i dont remember if the warning told the user what swap is or not though).

yes, sorry fro not specifying.

I can mitigate this by getting rid of the duplicate warnings when committing partitioning changes. Consolidating the multiple dialogs into one is unfortunately hard just at the moment for reasons related to translations.

are they the ones when you finally hit install?

OK.

Thanks for the quick response to the bug.

ubiquity (1.4.7) feisty; urgency=low

  [ Colin Watson ]
  * Set PARTMAN_ALREADY_CHECKED when committing changes from the new
    advanced partitioner, to avoid duplicate warnings (LP: #100009).
  * Use debconf escape capability to simplify migration-assistant summary
    handling.
  * Update Japanese keyboard layout handling to match console-setup
    1.7ubuntu18, which uses jp(latin),jp by default (LP: #63915).
  * Display an error dialog if a subsidiary process fails (LP: #92442).
  * Update translations from Rosetta.
  * Automatic update of included source packages: console-setup
    1.13ubuntu12, migration-assistant 0.4.5, partman-base 105ubuntu3.

  [ Jonathan Riddell ]
  * KDE frontend
    - Disable all widgets in autopartition subchoices
      when selecting another parent choice
    - Fix misplaced widgets on user details page (LP: #86175)
    - Hide error messages from user info at start of each evaluation
    - Use Apport as crash handler when available
    - Add a graphical disk partition widget

  [ Evan Dandrea ]
  * Catch exceptions in migration-assistant to avoid bringing down the
    entire installer.
