Ubuntu Customization Kit has not been developed for years, and has the note "!!!PROJECT DISCONTINUED!!!" on its Launchpad homepage.

Recent Ubuntu releases differ from previous ones in a manner, that certain steps of UCK now fail.

I can give some advice:
1. deselect all language packages that contain the string -touch-
2. modify /usr/lib/uck/customization-profiles/localized_cd/customize_iso
 and change in line ~84 (the longest line in the whole file) the part

... $(zgrep gz ...
... $(zgrep xz ...

and three lines later

tar xfz *.tar.gz ||
tar xfJ *.tar.xz ||

You might check recent questions and bugs related to UCK on Launchpad. These recommendations (and some more) have already been given to other persons with similar problems.
