Yes, I had the same problem. In my case, the failure was due to the
ms-ttf-corefonts installer trying to download fonts when I hadn't
configured a network connection.

The solution in my case was to repeat the failing step of the
installation twice (only took a few seconds - I don't know why that
worked) which allowed then after the install was complete and my network
was configured, "sudo dpkg --configure -a"
