I dont know. I also use just these 2 commands+correct line for ubifs in 
/etc/fstab. One difference could be that i am now doing the releases in qemu

Btw have you tried flash the ubi image with dfu-util or is the installer using 

Otherwise i have taken the instructions for ubifs from here [1] if it can help
