Bug Description

To reproduce install with manual partition create a new parition table then create an xfs or ext4 / parition and a swap partition leaving some free space and a drive to install the bootloader on. The install now button shuld be eithere to be selected or clicked with the keyboard Then in this free space click the plus button icon on ubuntu mate to add a new partition and select physical volume for encrpytion. Read warning about data loss. Click the cancel button. Try to select the install now button after executing this and the user cannot. even though the paritioning setup would install a valid paritioning setup.

I expected since a root partition and swap with some free space and a bootloader is a system that should correctly install any ubuntu flavor that this have the install now button work. Instead the button was not selecteable after hitting the cancel button for physical volume for encryption. IF I hit the change button to edit a partition I was creating I would not have this problem.

I also get this with an i386 version of lubuntu and trying to create other types of partitions like ext2 ext3 , ext4 etc and then hit cancel does not have this problem. Only hitting cancel for a phyiscal volume for encryption.
