UBUNTU Server 18.4.2 install error - on configuring apt

UBUNTU Server 18.4.2 install error (from USB) - on configuring apt it hangs with error. I checked on dell precision T3500 and then installed from ISO image on my other workstation in Vmware. Same problem. How the @#$ this bug can even exist on LTS server edition?
Is there some solution or should i look for something more stable like debian for my server?

fyi: debian or Ubuntu is your choice, if you have the higher skillset for debian go ahead (it has fewer support options too).
