  [regression] ubiquity crashed in debconf.py:104 with ValueError:
  invalid literal for int() with base 10: ''

Status in OEM Priority Project:
  Fix Released
Status in ubiquity package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in ubiquity source package in Bionic:

Bug description:
  * Impact
  The Ubuntu installer crashes on some machines (seems more often on hiDPI 
machines (QHD/UHD etc)).

  * Test case
  Try installing Ubuntu on an hidpi machine, it should complete installation 
instead of crashing.

  * Regression potential
  The fix in ubiquity touches the code handle uid drop/privilege, that can have 
unexpected side effects so we need proper/complete testing of the installer


  Update: Actually the crash occurs on slow-ish systems due to a race
  condition. It's not strictly only hi-DPI machines - that's just the
  most common place it is experienced.





  1. Boot into the live session.
  2. Settings > Devices > Displays > Scale = 100%
  3. Click Apply.
  4. Proceed with installation: Click "Install Ubuntu 18.04 LTS".


  Crashed in a VM in the middle of installation. The host is Bionic up
  to date.
