Unfortunately, in this case we are incapable of providing a better error message. (2, None) is coming from a very low level, and it's really the best we can do. If you search for bugs whose tracebacks contain (2, None), you'll find 21 bugs in Fedora anaconda alone. If any of them matches your situation, please attach your log files, and if not, please feel free to open a new bug about this.
