Package: tails-installer
Version: 4.4.7+dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
if I run tails-installer-launcher while my USB key is mounted, it fails

 tails-i386-2.2.iso selected
 Unmounting mounted filesystems on '/dev/sdb'
 GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Error.NotAuthorizedCanObtain: Not
authorized to perform operation
 Tails installation failed!
GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.UDisks2.Error.NotAuthorizedCanObtain: Not
authorized to perform operation (4)

In order to reproduce this I can do:

$ udisks --mount /dev/sdb1
 Mounted /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/sdb1 at /media/usb0
$ mount|grep sdb
 /dev/sdb1 on /media/usb0 type iso9660
$ tails-installer-launcher

And I can solve just manually unmounting the USB key:

$ udisks --unmount /dev/sdb1
$ tails-installer-launcher

running AwesomeWM

It is not a problem of removable bit:
$ cat /sys/block/sdb/removable
