I had problems installing Waldorf from DVD media. Both the 64 bit and 32 bit versions showed the same issues.
I burned several disks thinking it was a media issue. The same thing happened.
The install went fine until it tried to read the package list from the DVD. It failed and told me the DEB files did not exist. I pressed the continue button anyway and the next APT update stage worked, then it failed when trying to install GRUB. The install stated that the GRUB package did not exist.
I had the same problem with a system that had winblowz installed, one with a clean disk, and a Dell laptop. All displayed the same problems.
On the last install attempt this morning I managed to get it to work. I clicked through the errors until I got back to the installers main menu and from there I selected 'install system' again. A warning came up telling me it found files on the disk already and asked if I wanted to proceed anyway, which I did. This time the installer finished without problems and proceeded to install GRUB.
The reboot brought me to the new Waldorf system and all is fine.
I took some screenshots but they got wacked during the re-'install system'.
Once I have Waldorf setup I'll see if I can repeat the errors in a virtualbox setup and post the screenshots.
Well, that did not go well. The virtualbox install went OK. I really did not expect a failure, but....I tried it from the ISO file and from the DVD and they both worked.
Next I tried the DVD install on my Dell laptop, the same one that failed, and this time it worked.
I have not tried it on my desktop and probably will not, now that Waldorf is working.....
Anyway, if anyone has a DVD install issue like I did, I managed to get it working by running the install from the menu a second time as I described above.

I had similar problems today on a fairly ancient (but still usable) system. Failure to configure package manager, then failure to install grub. I haven't retried, as I want to keep the machine running on system that is on another drive on that machine, and am afraid I may do more damage.
However, install seems to have gone ok to VirtualBox on Linux Mint Maya host. Host is 64 bit, but VBox seems to only like 32 bit clients, so that is what I tried to install. It's now updating the s/w packages in the VBox client.
