free -h is generally more readable, but...

It's RAM.  You basically have a total of 2G ram on the system, you have 
less than 500M available and are into swap by nearly 1G, so you're 
swapping heavily.  2G is enough for a minimal install but browsers such 
as firefox and chrome can easily use a lot of memory fast and trying to 
run one on a 2G system while doing an install at the same time will get 
you swapping and slow the system to a crawl.
