Hi Aere,

I have the same experience as you. A couple of days ago the Ubuntu
Startup Disk Creator failed for me again (in 14.04.2 trying to install
15.04). Unetbootin from the developer's PPA works well, and mkusb works
well.

What trickled down a couple of days ago did not pass the test. See this link

comment #117 and the following comments.

Best regards
Nio
