* What led up to the situation?
Installation of a new system on an 8.6GB virtual harddrive using either of the listed NETINST cds
"Jessie" Official Snapshot i386 NETINST
"Jessie" Official Snapshot amd64 NETINST
Select any install method and then use Guided Partitioning with separate /home
(with or without encryption).
Default setting is ~2gb / and remainder for /home.
This is insufficient space for install with any of the graphical environments so during the Install Software step, a red error box comes up that gives a generic Step Failed message.
* What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
First step was to try to resize the LVM w/Encryption which failed.
Logs showed out of space errors, so reinstalled without separate /home.
* What was the outcome of this action?
Fully functional without separate /home partition, default install with Cinnamon (not Gnome) appears to be just over 4gb.
* What outcome did you expect instead?
Information about the size of the packages selected, so a possible install could be completed with the partitioning chosen.
A note in the Guided Partitioning regarding space requirements (since non-GUI should fit in the space allocated). Possibly with a separate Guided for GUI option?
Best is one or both and a clear error message when the install fails at the install software step.

partman-auto - Automatically partition storage devices (partman) (udeb)
Closes: 725642 770032 803604
partman-auto (133) unstable; urgency=medium
[ Martin Michlmayr ]
* Update partition layout defaults:
- Set minimimum size of / partition to 900 MB for platforms without
separate /boot partition and to 800 MB for those with /boot.
- Increase maximum size of / partition to 20 GB or 30 GB, depending
on the platform.
- Increase minimum size of / partition to 1500 MB and of /home to
1000 MB. This allocates more space to the / partition on smaller
disks and ensures the separate /home option is not offered on 2 GB
- Increase priority of / partition so more space is allocated to it
on small disks. Closes: #770032
- Increase maximum size of / partition to 25 GB. Closes: #725642
- Increase maximum size of /var partition to 10 GB. Closes: #803604
- Increase maximum size of /tmp partition to 2 GB.
- Increase minimum size of / partition to 2000 MB, of /var to 1000 MB,
of /tmp to 256 MB and of /home to 4000 MB. This ensures that this
option is no longer offered on 4 GB disks.
- Increase priority of /home partition since most space should be
allocated to it.
- Increase priority of /tmp partition so more than the minimum is
allocated to it.
- Adjust priority of / partition in relation to other partitions.
