I’ve used previous tails versions many times (not recently) booting from
optical disk without difficulty. I have never been able to get it to work
from USB. I will describe my current attempt in some detail.
The computer is an almost new System 76 Sable running Ubuntu 16.04. I
and installed Tails Installer. Then plugged in a new Duracell 8GB memory
still. The stick mounded and I closed the resulting window. Ran Installer
and got this output:
Unmounting mounted filesystems on '/dev/sde'
Clearing unreadable partition table.
Partitioning device /dev/sde
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface
'org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Partition' on object at path
Tails installation failed!
No such interface 'org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Partition' on object at path
Closed Installer. Removed memory stick. It does not mount or produce any
other response when plugged in and does not show in Gparted.
Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
