Installer crashes

On my Xperia III, installing from Arch Linux I get the following crash.
So now my phone is in a half flashed state and I’m unsure how to proceed.

I have ran the installer from another computer running Ubuntu and it worked.

That’s fastboot crashing - the installer is just a shell script.
So perhaps you have an old/broken version in your distro?

Old version on arch?^^

I had problems with fastboot under ArchLinux. Possibly the version is too new, not too old.
