That should be harmless, and not related with the error you mention

That is indeed related with the console-setup issue you mention above.

Sector 2? Ouch! If that's one of the bad sectors, you might have
troubles installing grub.

/target is only made once the partitioning step is finished.

Ok. I'm afraid the faulty disk will be a definite issue.
