Apparently the lsb_release python module we were using in our automirror code no longer exists in Ubuntu since Debian now uses lsb-release-minimal rather than lsb-release. I swapped out the distro module for the lsb_release module in the automirror code and changed the codename-finding code to use it, and got a successful installation.

Working on an upload to fix this right now.

This bug was fixed in the package calamares-settings-ubuntu - 1:23.04.4

calamares-settings-ubuntu (1:23.04.4) lunar; urgency=medium

  * Switch from using the lsb_release python module to the distro module, as
    the python module for lsb_release no longer exists in Lunar.
    (LP: #2008685)
  * Bumped Standards-Version to 4.6.2, no changes necessary.
  * Added an explicit Depends on python3-distro.
  * Ran wrap-and-sort.
