[18.28 log anaconda-tb-Yhv0R3] PayloadInstallError: Could not run transaction.
Here's a reproducer with anaconda 18.28:
1. Create a 5120M disc image:
qemu-img create f18-test-4.img 5120M
2. Start installer from DVD:
$ qemu-kvm -m 1024 -hda f18-test-4.img -cdrom ~/xfr/fedora/F18/F18-Beta/TC8/Fedora-18-Beta-TC8-x86_64-DVD.iso -usb -vga qxl -boot menu=on -usbdevice mouse
3. Auto-create partitions and filesystems.
4. Begin Installation.
Install fails with "Could not run transaction." message.
Traceback from the attached anaconda-tb-Yhv0R3:

Aside from actually displaying the error messages, we should clean this up to where closing the error dialog does not throw an exception.

[18.29] screenshot showing "You need more space on the following file systems: 756.20 MB on /"
Verifying that when there is not enough file system space, anaconda 18.29 on the F18-Beta-TC9 DVD reports the amount of additional space needed to complete the install, and that after clicking Exit Installer, the installer exits and restarts instead of attempting to report a bug. Thanks.
It might be useful to report the current and required file system sizes too, so the user doesn't have to do the addition ...
NB: The error records in packaging.log report the cumulative space needed for each package and all previous packages, but the wording suggests that they are reporting the space needed for each package alone:
