On the support tracker.
Please boot the installer to "try ubuntu" mode and post back the output of terminal command
sudo parted -l
If it is your desire to manually set up the partitioning, We see here what you have done and if there is additional work entailed.

Be aware that the simple way to install ubuntu - that uses the entire disk drive - is to choose "erase disk and install ubuntu". A large drive and this may not be the "best" option.

Please advise on how you want to proceed to install ubuntu :)

best regards
Bashing-om
