Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

When I try to install Kubuntu Karmic, the installer crashes as soon as I push the "Überspringen" Button (I guess it's something like "Skip" in english) and a report with the following trace pops up:

I also had this problem, I followed advice on a comment for another bug and opened a terminal and typed "sudo apt-get remove ubiquity-slideshow-ubuntu" It didn't seem to skip anything when I pressed "skip" but was able to install successfully.

This bug was fixed in the package apt-setup - 1:0.42ubuntu1

apt-setup (1:0.42ubuntu1) lucid; urgency=low

  * Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
    - Install the Ubuntu mirror generator instead of Debian's.
    - Set apt-setup/security_host to security.ubuntu.com, or
      ports.ubuntu.com on ports architectures; adjust directory and
      distribution to match.
    - Add security sources for restricted, universe, and multiverse,
      commented out unless the respective components are enabled. Disable
      security generator checks for contrib and non-free.
    - For CD installs, leave the sources.list created by apt-setup in
      /etc/apt/sources.list.apt-setup, and restore the sources.list created
      during base installation for the rest of the installation.
    - Honour OVERRIDE_BASE_INSTALLABLE when checking
    - Reduce the mirror verification timeout to 10 seconds.
    - Disable the volatile service for Ubuntu, and don't ask the
      apt-setup/services-select question.
    - Always disable the CD at the end of installation if any mirrors are
      present, even if it's a complete CD.
    - Pre-populate apt's lists directory with signed Release files for
      archive.ubuntu.com (and mirrors) and security.ubuntu.com, to protect
      against downgrade attacks right from initial installation.
    - Run 'apt-get update' for all sources.list lines produced by a single
      generator in one go, and don't comment out sources.list lines if it
    - Make the path to security updates configurable, as well as the host.
    - Remove restricted from cdrom entry if apt-setup/restricted is false.
    - Add Release files for intrepid and jaunty.
    - Allow preseeding apt-setup/partner to enable the partner repository.
    - Use cdrom-detect/cdrom_fs when remounting the CD to ensure that we do
      so using the same filesystem.
    - Make sure apt-cdrom doesn't unmount the CD if cd_type ends with
    - Enable all network sources, including security updates, even if the
      network is unconfigured.
    - Fix handling of universe and multiverse in -backports lines.
    - Honour apt-setup/restricted, apt-setup/universe, and
      apt-setup/multiverse when writing -backports lines.
    - Check to make sure the CD filesystem is iso9660 before remounting it
      as such. Do not write a CD identifier if we're not working with
      iso9660 so pkgsel does not try to unmount such disks.
    - Fix description of universe in generated sources.list: packages there
      are expected to be under a free licence.
    - Run 'apt-get update', without downloading package lists or cleaning up
      old files, after moving the sources.list generated during base system
      installation back into place.
    - If OVERRIDE_LEAVE_CD_MOUNTED is set, don't unmount /cdrom; this is a
      bad idea in a live CD environment!
    - Bail out cleanly from cdrom generator if /cdrom/.disk/info doesn't
      exist or has zero size.
    - Re-enable progress bar cancellation.
  * Add Release files for lucid.
  * Increase the mirror verification timeout to 30 seconds, now that this
