comment Create GUID partition table (GPT) during Ubuntu Server install
Thanks for this answer. I will check if parted is available from the Server installer text console.

comment Create GUID partition table (GPT) during Ubuntu Server install
@Fabby: Right, I gave a "yes or no" question, and that is basically what I wanted as an answer: Either "no" or "yes" + how. I wrote twice that this question is explicitely about the standard Ubuntu Server installer, so I think it's only fair to expect that this point isn't completely ignored.

The question was how to create a GPT in the Ubuntu Server text-mode installer.

comment Why do weird printers show up in the Ubuntu printing dialog?
I can confirm this problem. If you are on a network with self-announcing printers, on 14.04, (some of?) those printers show automatically up in the print dialog (at least of Xubuntu and Kubuntu). Stopping cups-browsed prevents cups from adding those printers, but still, they show up in the print dialog. So yes, this is not a cups problem. The problem is resolved by stopping avahi-deamon, which is not optimal. We need a solution which keeps avahi-deamon alive, but stops the print dialog from displaying those printers.

comment How do I disable automatic remote printer installation?
Unfortunately, this didn't stop remote printers from being added for me.

comment Unattended-upgrades mail only on error or reboot?
When posting this answer, I had applied the same to a server with unattended updates. In the last unatteded update, linux-image-3.13.0-39-generic was installed. And I got the first reboot-required message, so it works!
