No, I just tested this myself and was unable to reproduce the behavior
you experienced.  Are you sure the installation did not crash near the
end, and enough of the system was in place to allow you to boot?  You
would not have seen the "installation finished" dialog, if this were
the case.

If you are able to reproduce this issue, please file a bug against
ubiquity (, and
attach the log files following the procedure documented at , plus the
output of `dpkg --list | grep ubiquity` from the installed system.
