This shows that your download is corrupted. That would explain all
your other problems too. You need to download the iso again. If you
are using direct download, I would suggest you to switch to torrent.
While downloading torrents, your torrent client (e.g. transmission or
ktorrent) checks for the checksums of each piece, so corrupted
downloads are very rare.
