Install is unable to go back from advanced partitioning

Bug Description

Binary package hint: base-installer

During install I went to advanced partitioning and then back to review what was proposed. Trying to get back in advanced partitioning gave me an error about no root defined. I had to cancel my install and restart from the beginning.

(I am not sure if I was able to go ahead with the auto proposed partitioning because I could not select the correct hd and going forward would destroy my data, selection problem is a different bug which is already reported)

I can confirm this insofar as I get the no root filesystem defined dialog when going to advanced partitioning, going back to the first partitioning page, and selecting advanced again.

  * Provide a better description for the upgrade/reinstall option that
    intends to make the difference between it and a traditional Ubuntu
    upgrade clear (LP: #752372).
  * Don't show the biggest_free option if we can't fit Ubuntu in the
    free space (LP: #751145).
  * Try calling unlock_environment a bit earlier to work around LP: 657086.
  * Be sure to back up in the dbfilter when backing up from the advanced
    partitioning page (LP: #744938).
  * Increase the minimum size of the Ubuntu install to be twice the size
    of the contents of the installation (roughly 5.2 GB) (LP: #745148).
