Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

After clicking on the link to update the installer, ubiquity is showing "<a href="release-notes">release notes</a>" instead of just "releases notes", as shown in the screenshot.
This has a very low priority, but the end user might think about Ubuntu not being professional.

Also confirming on i386 Lucid beta 1: I noticed that this only seems to happen on my netbook when the network cable is unplugged. Since the wifi isn't running either this means that there is no network available. When I re-ran the installer with the network cable plugged in the release notes link was displayed as a proper hyperlink.

I have duplicated this in Virtual Box, the link works with NAT network access running and the link is displayed as HTML when the virtual network cable is not connected.

Perhaps the "update the installer" link should only be shown when the network is up and running? It doesn't make much sense to display the option if it will fail.

Now I don´t have this problem because when I updated, ubiquity restarted. I´ve attached a photo.

Fixed in ubiquity 2.2.6. The latest daily-live CDs will have the fix.
