Public bug reported:

When installing Kubuntu 18.10, I was attempting to re-use and format my
previous root partition in the manual partitioner. However after exiting
out of the "Change..." menu, I realized I forgot to set the partition to
be formatted, so I checked the box next to it, causing Ubiquity to
crash.

>From what I can tell of a cursory glance of the traceback, it appears to
specifically be a bug in the KDE frontend.
