Are you killing your graphic interface before? Try crt + alt + f1, login, and type sudo lightdm stop before running the installer.

comment Can I arrange the files in a folder by the method “Group According to type” in Nautilus?
@Nirmik I believe that if you first select View->List, then click on Type to group the files according to its extension and then click back to View->Icon, the order will be kept so you will have an Icon view group by extensions.
