Probing for devices to install to failed.

Asked by Maranda Davis on 2019-08-24

I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 18.04.3 and it keeps giving me the error "Unfortunately Probing for devices to install to failed. Please report a bug on launchpad and if possible include the contents of the /var/log/installer directory."

What should I do to get around this?
Thanks!

Please do what he message tells:

"Please report a bug on launchpad and if possible include the contents of the /var/log/installer directory."

There is no installer log attached.

However, you can try the alternative installer, worked for me for my dell server installation

Can you help with this problem?
