Advanced Features window gets stuck, prevents install

Bug Description

Bug: Unable to close the advanced features window and continue with the Ubuntu installation process.

Affected versions: 20.04, 22.04, and 22.10. This is due to the introduction of the "Advanced features" button option as oppose to radio buttons.

Reproducing Bug:
When installing Ubuntu, at the installation type menu select erase disk, click "Install Now", then quickly click on "Advanced features" while install procedure loads. At this point the advanced features and "Write the changes to disks?" windows should be open. Clicking either "Go back" or "Continue" will leave the advanced features window open and makes it impossible to close and continue with the Ubuntu installation.
