Installation - partition manager is breaking

Bug Description

Daily kubuntu, clean install in virtualbox

I wanted to try if it is possible to have an encrypted boot partition too, like openSuSE.

I opted for manual configuration of the partitions and created a new partition table. First i created a small (1G) partition and chosed "encrypted storage" (or whatever it was called) instead of a file system. I closed the dialog window.

Then I did the same thing with the intended root partition. It crashed when i closed that dialog.

Similar issue with Ubiquity 20.04.3 as of Dec 7, 2019.
Installing to sdb, asked it to unmount sda partitions, but it said it could not unmount sda5 where isodevice is mounted.
Selected to not use ESP on sda, but use ESP on sdb, unselected swap on sda & swap on sdb. Install to sdb12, format and use as ext4 & use as /.

For me I forced the unmount of /dev/sda5 which is where /isodevice mounted.
sudo umount -lrf /isodevice
