Fedora 27 Server Installation halts with the message:_

The Following error occurred while installing. This is a fatal error and installation will be aborted.

"Non-fatal POSTIN scriptlet failure in rpm package dovecot"

Installing dovecot.x86_64 (805/906)

Clicking on Exit Installer hangs the system.

Configuration: Lenovo Deskop - CPU: i5 7th Gen, HDD: 1 TB, RAM: 8 GB.

No existing OS on the system (single boot)

Google solutions has not resolved this issue. No one seems to have encountered this in Fedora 27.

I ran into a similar issue with F27. Resolved by using a different set of install selections.

Finally got past the error by not installing the mail server

(will install the email server separately after the Fedora 27 Server installation is completed)

(one of the possible solutions from the Fedora 25 link: posted by fcomida)_
