I do not speak/read Swedish.

But this shows up right after picking "Svenska" and selecting
"Installera Lubuntu".  The very next prompt has the "<ERR>" text in the
installer and it happens 100% of the time.

Den valda platsen kommer att  <ERR>

Note: I do not speak Swedish...nor do I have a Swedish keyboard.  So
after selecting "Svenska" I pressed F3 and set it to "Canada" so that my
keyboard allows me to type the underscore character.

I'm booting in legacy mode so this tweak gets more debug info:
- press F6 to get additional options
- hit escape at the pop-up, and then pressed the left arrow three times so the 
cursor is positioned in front of the "---" in the boot command line.
- added this to the boot options: DEBCONF_DEBUG=developer DEBCONF_C_VALUES=true
- add an extra space after =true 
- hit enter to start the install.

Similar trick works in UEFI mode, just hit "e" to edit the command line,

When I see the <ERR> onscreen I switched to an alternate console
(control-alt-f2) and hit enter to activate the console:

tail -n 50 /var/log/syslog | more

It's choking on debconf string: localechooser/shortlist TXT2

"Den valda platsen kommer att " the next word in this string is
"anvandas" (with the second a having the umlaut double-dots on top).

I am troubleshooting this further, but hope it helps those who do.

Bug description:
  Lubuntu's alternate installer has a problem.

  The texts in the dialogue in Swedish is faulty (in several but not all
  dialogue boxes). I have to guess based on my memory from earlier
  installations. This must be fixed before the final release.

  Anyway, I was able to install a system using the whole drive according
  to the test case in the iso testing tracker. So it seems that the
  (only?) problem here is how the texts in the dialogue are managed.

  This bug affects Lubuntu alternate Bionic beta 1.

  I installed Lubuntu in my Toshiba laptop (on bare metal),
