Bug Description

Before finishing installation, both ubuntu and kubuntu 7.10 amd64 are looking for updates from the server (or were they localisation packages?). I have a fast connection, but this still took 30 minutes in both cases (I dont'care if it was beacause of busy servers, I want to skip this part). This is unacceptable. It took the same amount of time that it takes to install the whole system.

There should be a "skip this step..." button there with the following text: You can update your system after reboot...

or something like that :-)

(also, I believe that the kubuntu install was not in my native language (hungarian) after the reboot.... though I did choose it in the language selection...)

I've got this problem too, yesterday the servers was overloaded so the connection speed was very low.
Tailing the /var/log/messages I've seen that the server was unreachable for about twenty minutes.
