what device are you using? – Mateo Oct 18 '13 at 17:41

Are you using an xperia?
I see that C1505 might be their code. It's only supported for Nexus phones right now. To force the Nexus 4 (mako) install try this:

sudo phablet-flash ubuntu-system --no-backup -d mako

Make sure you don't mind bricking this phone if it's not a Nexus 4.
