I am trying to install ubuntu server 20.04 LTS but everytime I reach the point where to set the profile (name, username and password etc...), I get an error “Sorry, there was a problem completing the installation”…

I have downloaded the ISO file from Ubuntu, and my VM settings are:

CPU = 1

Core or. CPU = 2

Memory = 4

Cd-rom = ide.0

Disk = scsi.0 and 100 GiB

 

Please advice how I can fix this, and install my Ubuntu server 20.04 LTS

Hi Chaitrali,

Thx a lot for your great response. However, I found another workaround, which was to upgrade an existing 18.04 version.

When I have the need to do a fresh installation again, I will refer to the articles mentioned in your reply.

 

best regards

What is the other way than upgrading an existing 18.04. I would like to install a fresh ubuntu-20.04.1-live-server-amd64 on a VM? I get the same Error using the Community Edition im my Home Lab.

Choosing SATA type for the guest disk solves this problem. Something to do with SCSI disk type.

re-check the installation ISO, just encounter that issue today… and just re-download the ISO...

If you have internet connectivity, you can select to download the upgraded installation program and with it, installation goes fine.
