Not trying to be obtuse, but is libreoffice-l10n-en-gb installed? I assume it is but wanted to start with the basics.

It would be helpful if you copied the error message into your question text as well. It could numerous things from your internet connection to the need to run sudo apt-get update first.

comment Cannot successfully create a bootable Ubuntu USB drive
I too have found this on numerous occasions. Often a reformat of the USB stick to simple FAT and then a redownload of the ISO or just restarting UNetbootin does the trick.

comment Disk Errors. FSCK returns 0
Interesting, I had that same issue with Ubuntu VM on Hyper-V and tracked it down to timeouts on an iSCSI connection. Could it be a either a crap cable or faulty disk controller?
