I downloaded the 32 bit Ubuntu 12.04 extended Support version.

During the installation, I selected the option that say download all updates. That installation happened till installing system and that's when it got stuck! The progress bar stopped moving. I stopped the installation there and started all over again. This time, I dint check the updates option.

Now, its stuck at Retrieving files 40 out of 90. The installation happens till 40. But 40 never really goes at all. Its just stuck there! What would be the problem?

Are you using a DVD or an USB device to install? If it's a DVD, did you tried with another one? –  Radu Rădeanu Sep 26 '13 at 16:56
Could be a corrupted installer. Did you check the check-sums of the installer before burning into DVD or USB? Hashes are available here: help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes –  Arnold Sep 26 '13 at 19:41
