You have lots of this sort of thing in your syslog:

Jun 2 11:49:14 ubuntu kernel: [4294676.537000] hdd: command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
Jun 2 11:49:14 ubuntu kernel: [4294676.537000] hdd: command error: error=0x54 { AbortedCommand LastFailedSense=0x05 }
Jun 2 11:49:14 ubuntu kernel: [4294676.537000] ide: failed opcode was: unknown
Jun 2 11:49:14 ubuntu kernel: [4294676.537000] end_request: I/O error, dev hdd, sector 1429184

... which indicates a bad CD burn or a dirty lens in your drive. I suggest cleaning the lens and trying a fresh burn.

However, the installer should deal with this more gracefully if possible.
