it might not help but on both NetBSD-6/i386 and current/amd64,
I've had the same error when I've previously used the utilities
and had various mounts active, both local partitions and nfs and
then went back to complete the install which then failed. After
rebooting and selelecting the installer there was no problem and
installs completed ok.
