Are you trying to install Ubuntu from a physical CD / DVD / USB drive or are you using the ISO image file you downloaded?

Never upgrade your working system to the newest release without thorough testing on the actual hardware you will be running it on.
Never perform a system update in a live session
Installed Ubuntu Touch 1.0 on my Nexus 7. And loving it!
