Ubuntu 14.04 preseed/late_command doesn’t work: this is why

The reason why

d-i preseed/late_command string

doesn’t work on your installation of Ubuntu 14.04 is that you are probably using Ubiquity.
I spent several hours trying to figure this out and at the end I managed to understand (thanks to http://askubuntu.com/questions/104135/preseed-late-command-not-running) that instead I (and you while you are here) should use this command:

ubiquity ubiquity/success_command string \

This last made my installation completely work.

Hope this will help others out there.
