I have the same exact bug. It works perfectly until it says "reading
packages" then boom, Exception Occurs.
Traceback (innermost last)
File "/usr/bin/anaconda.real", line 225, in ?
(several more lines like the one above appear)
TypeError: unsubscriptable object
I tried the updated install but still no go.
I am also trying to install from my HD.
And for some reason nomatter what I type at the boot: prompt
it always loads the graphical interface.
There is reason to believe this error is the result of having corrupt or
incomplete RPM files in the source directory. Please see bug #6438 for details.
