When I tried last, the files were not set up properly, it failed short
of the end of the install, although the same .iso file worked in
VirtualBox. When I chrooted into /dev/sda1 from another install, I got
this when I attempted to update:
 # chroot /mnt
root at cws-N68S3B:/# apt update
Reading package lists... Error!
E: List directory /var/lib/apt/lists/partial is missing. - Acquire (2:
