Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Didn't notice what was happening. Was browsing the web with Firefox during install of Natty.

Marked to fetch updates and install MP3 codecs.
Set it to format and install to sda1 as / partiotion and sda2 as /home.
sda3 is swap.
Chose "Israel" keyboard layout and Jerusalem as time location.

Installation attempted from live USB made using unetbootin.

It crashes with message "An attempt to configure apt to install additional packages from the CD failed." while installer sass it is scanning the CD-ROM. probably because there is no CD-ROM and it doesn't know it's running from USB.
 In ubiquity it sass it is scanning the CD-ROM for additional packages to installs.
