Alfresco fails during wizard install at Postgres create user on Ubuntu

I have a new server running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.  I downloaded and ran: alfresco-community-installer-201701-linux-x64.bin.  I have tried running it as a user, which owns the install directory and as root, both fail at the same step.

Does anyone know how to either, have this not fail, or correct the issue.  The wizard is installing a fresh postgresql version during the wizard process, so this is not an issue with a prior postgresql install.  I see others have this same issue, but I have not found a solution on Ubuntu.
