I gave it a go, your dep collecting commandline fragment also collects
the string Error: which grep -v : takes care of btw.

It does start in graphical mode, asks me what language to use, but when
I click Next on the default English (English), it pops up a box "An
error occurred when attempting to load an installer interface
component."  className = KeyboardWindow.  Then it's just Exit | Retry.

I guess there's some unspoken packaging dependency.
