I think you need first to create a Launchpad account.

Why not let ToriOS install itself without doing the manual installation?
Nio did an amazing job with OBI to make it do everything by its own. As

system install itself.

ToriOS initially was based on Ubuntu but then we decided to move to Debian
so ToriOS 1.0 is based on Debain.

I've been there some years ago:

That's good idea. Maybe we need to send this suggestion to Distrowatch.com
