Check if booted in BIOS or UEFI

ls /sys/firmware/efi/efivars

If the directory does not exist, the system may be booted in Legacy BIOS Mode. Most likely you want to do a UEFI install so please double-check if your system supports UEFI and you selected the correct entry in the boot menu (In most cases prefixed with UEFI)
