  Package is not being installed if you install from a usb pendrive
  created from disks

Status in bcmwl package in Ubuntu:
  In Progress

Bug description:
  The issue here is that the driver is not able to be automatically installed, you can however install it manually.

  From the usbkey used to install the system copy the following files to your home directory:
  Ubuntu 15.10 amd64/pool/main/d/dkms dkms_2.2.0.3-2ubuntu2_all.deb
  Ubuntu 15.10 amd64/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl bcmwl-kernel-source_6.30.223.248+bdcom-0ubuntu6_amd64.deb

  Now open terminal and from the home directory run sudo dpkg -i
  dkms_2.2.0.3-2ubuntu2_all.deb bcmwl-kernel-source_6.30.223.248+bdcom-

  You should see a message to say networks available from the network-
  indicator and then be able to connect to wifi.

  Pre-requisite: Laptop with bcmwl supported chipset, intel based macs or dell xps for example.

  1. Grab the latest 15.10 daily image from cdimages
  2. Plug a usb pendrive into the system
  3. Open Disks
  4. Format the pendrive
  5. Select restore image to drive
  6. Select the image you just downloaded
  7. Click on okay if the install is happening on the pendrive
  8. Click on okay again to confirm
  9. Add the user password for permission to write to the drive
  10. Insert the written image into the laptop you want to install on
  11. In the uefi menu select the pendrive
  12. Select the live session
  13. Open system settings
  14. Open Software and updates
  15. Tap on the Additional Drivers tab

  I expect to the bcmwl driver available to install

  I see only micro code driver for the cpu (see screenshot)
