Ubuntu – Ubi-partman failed with exit code 141 from usb install

dual-bootgnomepartitioning

I am in the process of installing Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 from a USB ISO onto my laptop that I want to dual boot with Windows 10. I got to the step for creating a partition and was allocating about 50 GB; however, ubi-partman crashed with the 141 exit code. I clicked try again, but there hasn't been any progress for an hour and it seems to be stuck in that same error notification.

What can I do at this point?

Allocate an ext4 partition using your free space in your live session gParted before starting the installation process. This solved the same issue for me.
