FS#176 - Failed to activate swap partition error on boot

I can confirm the error discussed here on the forums.

I freshly installed the 17.0 Cinnamon spin and noticed that swap fails to activate on boot. I checked the ‘encrypted disk’ option during install. It can be remedied by editing fstab and changing the entry for swap from UUID to an absolute path /dev/mapper/luks...

But, the expected behavior is that swap is automatically activated on boot.

I agree that Calamares doesn't handle more than one encrypted partitions correctly at the moment. The only working scenario right now seems to be an installation on a single encrypted root partition.
There is a pending issue at calamares's github already about your issue:
