1. Try to run calamares from a terminal and check the output:
Code: [Select]
sudo calamares
2. There is Advanced Installer as a backup in a case of the default installer problem.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

I tried to run calamaris to start from terminal, an there is no output, it just crashes as the script does.

 I can confirm the reported crash of the installer.  When I ran it from the terminal I got the following message as is aborted.  I hope this helps.

Can you re-run the live system and the Calamares via the command:
Code: [Select]
sudo -E calamares -d 2>&1 > calamares-output.logIt will be stored in live home dir, so provide the file, so I could report it to the developer's.
