I just bought a new Aspire A515-51, and I tried to install Ubuntu 18.10 but I'm having trouble. When I have to select the partition where I want to install it, it doesn't show the
/dev/sda: screen capture
How can I be able to install it?

From screen you submitted looks like you can continue in the process. If you do not have any paralel system on notebook you probably will not damage anything.

I suppose, that /dev/sda will be created through the installation. But rather wait for better answer. Also those + - buttons could create and delete partitions.
Ok I have figured out the solution after days of digging around with some of the articles on here. Here are the steps I followed. Please be sure to read through the entire post before attempting as I did NOT want to dual boot and the steps listed will completely wipe windows off your laptop.
This process worked for me and my Acer Aspire A515-51 installing Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. The only difference is I wanted to run Ubuntu ONLY and not dual boot. However in the installer there is an option to run alongside and the only difference would be in step 4 to only partition part of the drive and not the whole thing like I did. just make sure you format it to ext4 Hope this helps.
