I've been trying to install Draftsight 2019 (beta) and during the install I keep getting errors. (see pictures)

I've tried to install using a few different methods.

sudo apt install ~/Downloads/draftSight.deb

and using gdebi.

unrecoverable fatal error, aborting

input/output error

After these errors I am unable to use my computer until I do a reboot. (programs won't open) and I have to do a hard reset because of errors (read only). after a reboot I uninstall the broken/partially installed Draftsight. using the following commands.

sudo dpkg --remove --force-remove-reinstreq draftsight sudo apt clean sudo apt update

Does anyone have an idea of what the problem could be?

Kind Regards,
