Two times with different set of packages, not sure how to exclude this one from install.

Here is the complete error message. It's a nonfatal error in a POSTIN scriptlet that causes a fatal error in our Fedora 28 installs:

The following error occured while installing.  This is a fatal error and installation will be aborted.

I am also receiving the error using the Fedora 28 64 bit Workstation Net Install iso.

I also received the same error twice while selecting different packages. The first was with the Workstation package, the second time I tried the Cinnamon desktop.

At no point did I specify any language other than English (US) or any special font package.

Update - The problem does not occur when installing from the Live Image (Fedora 28 64 bit Cinnamon Spin).

I‘m receiving the error typing "dnf groupinstall "Arthoring and Publishing" ".

updmap [ERROR]: Did you run mktexlsr?

You can disable non-existent map entries using the option

Hope it can help you.

The only answer I know is to not install Authoring and Publishing packages. What I don't know is how to install TeX afterward and not get the same problem.
