You're right.

So the correct workaround is:

When this error occurs, go to the menu and open a shell (the last but
one entry in the menu).  Then type:
   chroot /target
   apt-get install ntpdate
   ntpdate pool.ntp.org

Now choose the menu entry "Change debconf priority" and choose "high".

Finally, choose "Partition disks" to format the disk again.
Afterwards, the installer will continue automatically.  This time, the
installation will succeed.
