I got my xps 13 in the ubuntu developer edition today and ran into problems with its installation program. Going through the installation program, it gave me the option to "Create a Dell recovery image" which I selected. When everything was ready to be installed the program froze trying to write to the usb stick. I reboot the computer and walked again through the installation guide. It told me that I have to choose another name for the computer (not the one I chose before). When again it tried to write everything to the disk, I got the following message (translated from German):
There has been an error with the installation of the packages:
Command '[debconf-apt-progress,' '-', apt-get', '-y', 'install', 'wswiss' …. return non zero exit status 255
The following packages are damaged:
The error could have been caused through an old installation program or because of an error with the above packages.
Putting enter, the installation program crashes.
I am new to ubuntu and I don't know how to proceed from here. Could anybody give me pointers as to what to do next? If the complete error message is needed, I can write this up.
