You are showing me more or less what is done doing an install via command
line; but I have been talking all along about running the install via
perhaps "ubiquity," the GUI installer that opens when one clicks on
"install lubuntu now" application or icon.

And then selecting "something else" . . . and then the GParted window
opens, and partitions are made via clicking on "new" in the "partition"
drop down menu, or 2x click on the partition line . . . . and then a little
drop down menu appears showing the available space in MB's, and same thing
for "flag as" . . . .

The same responses that you are showing in the CLI show up in a little
window as you format the partitions, "i.e., all data in the partition now
will be lost, etc" . . . and a little spinning icon as the new partition is
being "synced."

And, also again, this was using the installer that is provided in the live
desktop image.  A month or so ago, I used the mini installer installer,
possibly the debian installer is used there and used the same methods, the
installer takes longer that way, but, no problems with a 14.04 install.

Right, no logs have been posted . . .  have been away from the offending
and broken system for awhile . . . the ethernet issue, preventing upgrading
the system, or anything else . . . remains as of this writing.  I therefore
have not been able to install "pastebinit" or "apport" . . . and I would
need a refresher course on how to post the 1000 lines of logs that I read
through from the CLI . . . showing "broken dependency on network-manager"
and a few other lines in red that might be relevant.

Later today I might have time to try and rifle through my old notes on what
I used previously to fix the network problem . . . I have already tried
"modprobe sungem" . . . which was what worked historically . . . but that
