Archinstall has a new release:

The script created the filesystem partition on sdb3 but never created a usable filesystem on it.

I tried the archinstall script this evening and everything just worked. However, in my configuration I had selected the option to mount the /home directory on a separate partition. The script formatted the disk layout correctly, with the boot partition on sdb1, root on sdb2, and /home on sdb3. However the script did not update the fstab correctly. It mounted the /home directory alongside the / directory on sdb2, instead of selecting the UUID for /dev/sdb3 for the /home mount point.
