Can't install lubuntu 19.04

Hi everyone,
I’m trying to install lubuntu 19.04 on a HP stream 13 (which has a 32GB eMMC).
I created my bootable usb stick.
I started installation. I have no “Erase Disk” option to create partition automatically so i created partitions manually (FAT32 for EFI with esp tag and /boot/efi , according to documentation, and an ext for root ). During installation i get this error (screenshot) screen
I also tried with a swap partition, did not changed anything. I also tried 2 type of parttion table MBR or GPT and it did not changed anything.
Could someone help me please :frowning:

Thank you in advance !

Two things:

  1. Did you run “check disc for defects” at the boot prompt?
  2. Did you make sure before running the installer that no part of your drive (including potential old swaps) were automounted? No partitioning can be performed on a drive that is mounted, so the “erase disk” option will not be given.

1°) Yes I already checked it
2°) Nope i did not checked because i don’t know how but i’ll do it right now when i figure out how i could do this
EDIT : i get this

So if you want to install on that eMMC drive, you’ll want to sudo umount /dev/mmcblk0p{1,2} to unmount those two partitions. Then run the installer and it should give you an option to erase the disk.

You could also use KDE Partition Manager in your System Tools. To do the same thing. Right click on your partition and select “Umount” and then close.

Yes it worked i can erase the disk.
I’m currently waiting for installation. I Come back in few minutes with the result
EDIT : It did exactly the same error that the one of the screen of my original post

Please provide the ~/.cache/Calamares/session.log after the failure.

Ok please also provide the results of the following two commands:

  1. sudo parted -l
  2. sudo efibootmgr -v

It seems the issue is that the installer can’t write to the NVRAM. In the early days of UEFI, old entries wouldn’t get cleaned off properly and there would be no space to add new entries, thus the “input/output error.” One potential way to resolve this is by ensuring you have the most recent firmware for your machine.

Maaaaaaan ! You were right ! The problem was my bios version. I updated it and now everything works fine !
Thank you really man, you’e awesome

Hey! I have a simillar problem with my laptop which doesn’t follow changes made by efibootmgr. We can check it using following steps
When you get the error you mentioned in screenshot, close the installer and shutdown the system. Then follow the following steps:

  1. Use this linnk to download the refind usb image, it is a zip file actually.
  2. Extract the zip file. You will find a file named “refind-flashdrive-0.11.4.img” inside it.
  3. flash that img file to a usb using rufus (if you have a windows system) or dd if you have a linux system
  4. Now insert the newly flashed usb into a usb port and boot from it.
    You should see a screen simillar to this:

    You will not have those many options, you will see three ubuntu logos in on the screen.
  • One will point to grubx64.efi
  • 2nd will point to mmx64.efi
  • 3rd will point to the kernel. something like “vmlinuz…”
    You have to boot using the this entry, the one having line “vmlinuz…”

You should be able to boot successfully into lubuntu 19.04.

If you can, then there is no problem with installation and something happened with the nvram entries.
Please complete these steps and reply here. I will tell next steps after that.
