The reason autopartitioning failed is that you don't have enough unpartitioned
space on your disk to create new partitions in; you then didn't review them and
this caused the traceback.  This is, I believe, fixed in the update disk we
released, but the root cause of not having unpartitioned space to install to,
will still need manual intervention to fix.
