It would be great if you could get the error logs from those.

How did you launch Calamares? Right now, you need to go to the start
menu and search "Install System" which should launch it. If not, type
`sudo calamares` (yes, sudo, pkexec doesn't work and sudo doesn't break
anything in this case) in QTerminal.

You just go through the install like normal.

The only thing I haven't tested yet is Secure Boot, so if you have error
messages from that, it would be great if you could file a bug with them
against calamares-settings-ubuntu.
