    Try contacting the developer of Linux Deploy and post a bug report.

    Hello , ,i have the same problem , my install got stuck at about 45% with the following error: “installation step failed”. I increased the hard drive space from 15Gb to 40Gb and it worked perfectly

    Step 1: tick custom mounts


    Step 2: Mount it, so it shows all available paths, and how much space is left.

    Step 3: Change your download directory to the one with the most space. (In my case that is /data instead of /Sdcard0 or /legacy)

    Even know it was set to sdcard, it was still installing to system, which has no space
