I see that you are using a local mirror and that there is no connection to
the Internet (connection to security.d.o is refused). I wonder if this
could be related. I also see that the dialog says 82 packages need to be
downloaded, but the syslog only shows 81 packages.
However, both are probably not relevant as the preconfiguration phase has
already started. Unless your mirror is not up-to-date.
It looks like you have only selected the standard task. This really has
been tested extensively and has been proven to install fine. I see no
obvious issues in earlier parts of the installation.
I suspect that something is waiting for input, but no idea for what.
I would be interested to see what additional info appears in the syslog if
you kill the last processes in reverse order (use 'kill -9 <PID>' from
VT2) until the D-I frontend shows an error. The messages I'm looking for
may only appear _after_ you've backed up to the menu.
