"Failed to unmount partitions" dialog unintuitive

ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

The dialog asks us "Would you like the installer to try to unmount these partitions again?"

I expect to be able to answer "yes" or "no". However, I have the options "Go back" and "Continue". See: http://www.ucc.asn.au/~mccabedj/ccache/Screenshot-Hardy-YesNo.png

I think a bit, and decide "Continue" probably means Yes/Retry, but it bumps me back to the previous menu.

Agreed. This is actually a general problem with boolean questions emitted by partman; for some reason ubiquity renders all of them as Continue/Go Back questions. I think this was because many of them were "Go back to the menu and correct errors?" questions. We could probably do better nowadays.

Changed in ubiquity:
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Triaged

Ran into this myself. It seems that "continue" means unmount and "go back" don't unmount.

yes/no are BAD options

The Buttons should read "No" and "Unmount"

atm, there is a pretty long text and the third sentences reads "Do You want the installer to try to u...." and then u just got y/n.
