I'd say it is worth pursuing.  You should enter a bug report.  I assume 
you know that the network is actually up during the install, e.g. 
because you're doing a network install.  You would need to have a USB 
stick or a floppy disk available during install.  When you get whatever 
error you get during the updates phase at the end, switch to virtual 
console 2 via CTRL-ALT-F2 and type "bug".  This will place a diagnostic 
file on the USB or floppy called report.bug, which you should *attach* 
(not cut and paste) to the bug report.  It should contain the syslog, 
which should itself contain messages indicating why the network failed 
to come up.
