    Could you please add a little more detail? What exactly did you do, what did you expect to happen and what happened instead? Did you encounter any warning or error messages? Please reproduce them in their entirety in your question. You can select, copy and paste terminal content and most dialogue messages in Ubuntu. Please edit your post to add information instead of posting a comment. (see How do I ask a good question?) – David Foerster Feb 18 '18 at 19:13

This is a bug, reproducable also in VM. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/1754328

If there will be a fix, they have to: 1. Either release a new DVD ISO 2. Apply the updates during the installation
