Thanks for that. This is what I saw (amongst other things):-
DEBUG: retrieving nic-firmware 1.157.13
Cannot write to /var/cache/anna/nic-firmware_1.157.13_all.udeb (No such
file or directory)

The hard drive had been recently wiped - not even the partition table
remained. This was why I said I could not run apport. Maybe it is
worthwhile coming up with an apport live CD? One idea I had was to use a
GPartEd Live CD to create a partition table and a swap partition and then
try to run the install.

I _think_ the installer ran out of memory. I have a second system to work
on some time and will see if I can find out more.
