Yes, I had shown to you approx. the same steps as are done by automatic installation process. But this is different was as you are describing as "bug in installer". Could you please show picture of creation partition type Apple_Bootstrap with system NewWorld bootblock? You can take a picture using your phone if you dont know how to digitalize it. This small bootstrap partition type is required by yaboot and partition type nor size nor system can be changed for that use.
And regarding kernel log, there will be better to show that log. Apport is required part of base installation. I believe, it was not removed from installation medium. Also, you can that log transfer using different disk (e.g. small usb disc or any removable medium) to any computer instance with internet access. Right?
Also, dont forgett to check downloaded installation medium for deffects and check if you have enough RAM installed in your computer for graphical installation.

I had asked "how to create NewWorld bootblock (bootstrap) with different size than is supported by OFI" to use for booting from it. So, what was your way how to create partition which was called by you as NewWorld bootblock (bootstrap) with bigger size?
/dev/loop02 Apple_Bootstrap bootstrap 1600 @ 64 (800.0k) NewWorld bootblock
/dev/loop03 Apple_Free Extra 16775552 @ 1664 ( 8.0G) Free space
Block size=512, Number of Blocks=16777216
Command (? for help): w
IMPORTANT: You are about to write a changed partition map to disk.
For any partition you changed the start or size of, writing out
the map causes all data on that partition to be LOST FOREVER.
Make sure you have a backup of any data on such partitions you
want to keep before answering 'yes' to the question below!
Write partition map? [n/y]: y
The partition map has been saved successfully!
Regarding syslem logs, you had again not provided any refference to error.
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 failed.
