Specifically, the installer screen goes red when trying to install the busybox package, the log shows indeed that it cannot find the source image, while it is still mounted. I should add that I am installing in a VM from a downloaded .iso file -- tried both a Parallels VM and a VirtualBox VM, same problem in either one of them.
This is apparently an apt-cdrom issue, has nothing to do with busybox ;)
In /target, when I run `apt-get install busybox' (or anything else
for that matter), I see the following output (typed into email from
a virtual machine, so expect typos):
# apt-get install busybox

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
The file in question (busybox_..deb) is present in /media/cdrom0/poll/main/b/busybox/
directory. So it appears to be apt-cdrom which is at fault, or cdrom: apt handler.
