Drupal Install => "No active batch."

I have manually installed Drupal 7.26 and near the end of the install I get a message that says there is some type of failure of a HTTPS request and the next page says “No active batch.”

This error seems to be reported elsewhere:

Google: Drupal "no active batch"

But I can’t make sense out of what to do next or what the workaround is for DreamHost. Any help is appreciated.

I would really appreciate some help here as the same question to support has told me there is no one click installer for Drupal and that I should inquire here. This is a straight forward install of Drupal 7.26 with the correct credentials and the error occurs at the end of what appears to be a successful installation. Give it a try yourself and you will get the same result:
