Lately I've successfully had a clean install of Lubuntu (18.10) on my Asus x205ta with the instructions at this thread:How to install Lubuntu 16.04 on the ASUS X205TA (F205TA)
However, due to a report closing in and I have troubles using libreoffice I installed win10 back. Now I want to go back to Lubuntu but at the end of installation there's a window pop up with message as follows: External command finished with errors.
Command apt install -y --no-upgrade -o Acquire::gpgv::Options::=--ignore-time-conflict grub-efi-$(if grep -q 64 /sys/firmware/efi/fw_platform_size; then echo amd64-signed; else echo ia32; fi) finished with exit code 100.

Error message pic Since I don't have any background on computer science or anything like that, I can only assume that bootia32.efi somehow didn't work as planned (Correct me if I'm wrong), but when I installed Lubuntu for the first time this didn't happend. So here I am, looking for any suggestions and advice. If I can't fix this I'll just have to back to win10, but I've just made up my mind trying out linux during my two-week vacation. Your words mean a lot to me, thanks!
