Unfortunately the workaround mentioned in comment #2 (older netboot
image from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/bionic/main/installer-
amd64/20101020ubuntu527/images/netboot/) is not an option as it throws
an error regarding missing kernel modules in the initrd –
"No kernel modules were found. This probably is due to a mismatch
between the kernel used by this version of the installer and the kernel
version in the archive.
If you're installing from a mirror, you can work around this problem by
choosing to install a different version of Ubuntu. The install will
probably fail to work if you continue without kernel modules"
$ uname -r
$ ls /lib/modules
So not really an accurate error message at all. I suspect it is simply
because it checks the Packages file and finds that there are newer
versions available on the mirror.
