Install Ubuntu with/without network

Asked by corrado venturini on 2017-11-30

On one partition of PC I installed Ubuntu 18.04 from Ubuntu 18.04 LTS "Bionic Beaver" - Alpha amd64 (20171127) being NOT CONNECTED to network, on another partition of same PC i installed the same daily being CONNECTED.
The 2 installations are different, some packages are installed on the 1st install but not on the 2nd also after apt update-full-upgrade. On the install done WITH network video (totem) has a problem:
The packages flagged '[installed,automatic]' are installed only in the partition installed WITH network.
May You please explain the reason?
Thanks a lot.

I suggest you report a bug. Bionic is not even in Alpha 1 stage so you can expect massive bugs and huge feature holes.

There's a checkbox during installation that will mark non-free content for installation. You system with network probably had that checkbox checked.

The problem happens with or whitout the box checked, both in Ubuntu 18.04 and Ubuntu 17.10.
More: the package causing my problem does not pertain to non-free like all other listed as 'installed,automatic'
corrado@corrado-p6-aa:~$ apt policy gstreamer1.0-vaapi
  Installed: 1.12.3-1ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1.12.3-1ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 1.12.3-1ubuntu1 500
        500 artful/universe amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
so I will report a bug for installation or for ISO? and for what package?

How about if you disconnect the network so it's not useable at all?

As explained an my 1st post (may be I was not clear enough) i was disconnected from network - Ethernet cable disconnected and NO wifi on my desktop.
