Install off of corrupt CD/Complete installation from barebones ISO

Bug #182448 reported by MrZaius on 2008-01-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I recently was unable to complete an install from a flawed CD-R with an invalid localizations deb. This shouldn't have blocked the installation - If you have enough to boot and pull down an updated build, do just that. If it's not the kernel, init, apt/dpkg, or a handful of other packages in the base system (not even the entire base), you should be able to pick up where the installer left off on first boot. Error catching doesn't just mean "die when a checksum is bad, after already formating and writing to the new partition" - Adapt.

Honestly, I'm not sure I agree - This "idea" blocked my installation.
Proper error handling isn't a feature request.
