As its a bug you can look for the solution in the bugzilla page. However if you just dont care about the network provisioning that packstack does by default and want to just install openstack then do the following.

  1. Generate an answer file via command - packstack --gen-answer-file /root/myfile

  2. open the answer file.

  3. there would be an option by the name of PROVISION_NETWORK(PUBLIC/PRIVATE), or something similar I am forgetting the exact variable name(That you can figure out I guess).

  4. Set it to false.

  5. Start the deployment via command 'packstack --answer-file /root/myfile'

This would create an openstack environment but will not create any networks that come by default in neutron(Private/Public), So you will actually bypass this bug
