Bug Description

Ubiquity (as shipped on the 16.04 amd64 desktop ISO) does not download updates while installing when you've checked "Download updates while installing".

Same result with both BIOS and UEFI installs (although UEFI installs away download the latest kernel, whether or not you've checked "Download updates while installing").

I cannot reproduce this issue with 16.04.0, 16.04.3 and bionic. When "Download updates" is checked, updates are downloaded in /target/var/cache/apt/archives and available for installation after a reboot.

I'm closing this report, don't hesitate to reopen it if it is still an issue for you.
