Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Ubiquity reported a crash during the "Removing Packages" stage of the install and provided the link to file a bug here. I'm installing on a HP DV7 with an Intel Centrino processor and an ATI Raedon Graphics Card. I dual boot Windows 7 and am attempting to reformat an earlier Ubuntu install over two partitions, '/' and '/home'.

Launchpad will only allow one attachment so I've attached var-log-syslog. I'll see if I can attach var-log-partman in a comment below.

var-log-partman for above as stated.

Reinstalled with the 'download updates from the internet' option off and all worked fine. I suppose a choppy internet connection disrupts the installer.
