I did not find a solution for this problem, but I resolved it another way.

I originally installed Ubuntu on some old hardware to give ROS a try. I experienced lots of trouble installing Ubuntu and keeping it running, so I replaced the install with Debian. Debian installed cleanly and worked without issue. I then tried to install ROS and ran into this problem.

Since my hardware was old and low powered, I decided to build a new computer. I tried installing Ubuntu on the new computer, and it went smooth as silk. I then installed ROS with no problems.

I'm now going through the tutorials.

Thanks to all who read my problem and offered suggestions!
