I didn't find any helpful error messages. but i did remember that xfsprogs isn't installed by default in lubuntu, which would cause the error.  I'm gonna mark this as invalid.
thanks for your patience.

  ubiquity can't mount / on xfs

Status in “xfsprogs” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  i booted to a livecd, and installed lubuntu on a xfs disk by using the manual partitioner.  
  I used 1 xfs partition to mount /
  The operation seemed to compelete successfully, but upon rebooting, all i could see was an error about "serious erorrs were found while checking the disk drive for /."

  I managed to muck around in the fstab and fix the /etc/fstab file and the error went away.
  I did this by changing the last column in the line that mounts / from 1 to 0
  to fix this bug, it should not write to the fstab incorrectly.
