ubiquity doesn't provide much help if your system has 4 physical partitions

ubiquity (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

My system had 4 physical partitions when I received it from the manufacturer. I was able to resize one of them using ubiquity but then the free space was marked as 'unusable' because it had 4 physical partitions. It took me a bit to figure out that this was the problem and that I need to remove one of the partitions and create a virtual one.
