Sounds as if you don't have an internet connection because of incorrect
networking setup. But that's hard to tell without knowing the actual
Did you already switch to using an SSH session to complete the
installation, or are you still using the text interface from the console?
If you're still on the console you can see them by choosing "Execute a
shell" from the installer's main menu and typing 'cat /var/log/syslog'.
If you're using SSH, you can see the syslog by starting a second session

view the syslog.
If you need help, please copy and paste the full syslog (if possible).
