Bug Description

Problem: You cannot create a BTRFS or XFS partition on the Lubuntu daily desktop image using ubiquity.

Expected: You should be able to create a BTRFS or XFS partition during the install of the Lubuntu daily desktop image.

How to reproduce:
 1. Download, install, and boot a daily Lubuntu desktop image.
 2. At the partitioning step, select manual partitioning
 3. Create a BTRFS or XFS partition
 4. Attempt to continue with the installation and the partition creation fails

Workaround: Install the `btrfs-progs` and `xfsprogs` packages to enable support.

This might be because btrfs-progs is not seeded for lubuntu on the install image I get this in the installer.

I can confirm the bug. I can also confirm, that it works to install into a root partition with a btrfs file system after installing btrfs-progs into the live system. Good catch :-)

I tested with the Lubuntu Yakkety 64-bit current daily iso file.

Usb and is recognized as a root form.
If you try to copy a file.
root should be copied.
You do not have permission.

This was so elevated privileges.
usb must be the user's authority.

I do not get this anymore on the lubuntu 16.10 alpha 2 and now has xfsprogs in the manifest so this seems to have been fixed indepenedntly of this bug report.
