This bug was fixed in the package ubiquity - 18.04.14

---------------
ubiquity (18.04.14) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Revert the previous upload. It didn't actually *fix* all cases, just
    papered over them. If the race was lost, the screen reader still didn't
    work in ubiquity-dm mode.
  * Move the Gio.Settings code into the constructor of the wizard. This runs
    with dropped privileges (uid = 0, euid = 999) whereas run() runs as root
    (uid = 0, euid = 0). When run as 0 / 0, dconf creates its
    XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/dconf/user database as root. We need to ensure that it
    runs in a context with dropped privileges. (LP: #1767067)
