Just thinking out loud here after trying this in a VM ............ could this be due to 'language-pack-gnome-en-base' being in a state of flux?
If you use synaptic, which Lubuntu does, just search that and see if it's in a state of flux - that is upgradeable - but not yet. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Lubuntu, which is subscribed to the bug report. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/911905 Title: hitting enter on install screen 1 forces language to top selection Status in “ubiquity” package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: When choosing "install xubuntu" from the cd menu, hitting enter on the first screen causes the language to jump to the topmost language.
