Never done a wubi installation, but when you install Ubuntu you are supposed to give a root partition, i.e. the point from where all the linux filesystem tree will start. The root partition is designated with /.

When I did this whole partitioning part for installing Ubuntu, I set up my main (primary) partition for all of my data, then I gave a little bit of space as what is called a "swap area". This "swap area" is recommended, because when physical hard drive space becomes very limited, it acts as a backup drive in a way. Finally, I left about 5-10GB of space for my OS. For my primary partition, I used the ext4 filesystem with "/home" as my mounting point. Then for my "swap area" partition, I could not choose a filesystem or mounting point. My OS partition, I used the same ext4 filesystem, only this time, I used "/" as my mounting point. Using just "/" (the quotations are never part of what you are supposed to type, just fyi) means that you now have "defined" or created a "root" filesystem. From there, you should be able to follow the rest of the installation.

Enjoy!
