Here is my problem: I can create virtual machines using Ubuntu version 16.04.1, but if I use a later version (16.04.2, 16.04.3, or 17.10), the installation fails. I am just performing a typical install, selecting the OS, giving it one core and 1 GB of RAM and having VMWare install it. Nothing fancy. Here are the errors that occur during installation. Note, I have not found a pattern; each different VM gets stuck on one of these randomly.
Any ideas about what is going on? Have any of you ever had these issues, and how can I get past them?
Alright, this was an easy one. I was running VMWare Workstation Pro version 12.0.0, provided by my school. After I installed the latest update (version 12.5.8), things seem to be working just fine.
Because I built this PC myself, I was assuming that something must have been wrong with the hardware.
