comment tr: convert apostrophe to ASCII
To explain the last part further: tr is replacing each of the three bytes separately with ', hence ''' as well as the broken sequences where it has replaced two of the three bytes in the similar characters and . It should instead understand the three bytes as together meaning one character, and replace that instead.

comment 12.04 installation stuck
This looks like a low-level problem with the USB drive (sdc) not responding properly: the kernel tries several times, occasionally sending a reset, but nothing helps.
