The worst thing about this bug is, the fact that the previous user info
should be reused, and not a new user created. You see there was not even
a user creation dialog, since I did not erase the filesystems.
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu
Foundations Bugs, which is subscribed to ubiquity in Ubuntu.

1 Install ubuntu on a system ( in my case I used btrfs as the filesystem, and separate home and root partitions )
2 install ubuntu on the same system, but now do not format the partitions.
