I made an installer of ubuntu mate 18.04 and encountered failures in all methods of installation, side by side or to a newly created (gparted) ext4 partition with plenty of room and free space. It gets all the way though almost and kicks out the same error ‘apt-install grub efi …….’ I have a hybrid motherboard in this computer can use bios or uefi. Only way I got any joy was with a dvd ubuntu bionic beaver method. Usb never works and I tried over 20 times with different methods. I even tried to follow the ubuntu one directions to add the bootloader grub using copy/paste method. No good. I came to learn, after I was successful with the ubuntu via cd that there was indeed a successful installation but it never showed up until later when I put in the grub customizer app. So , I do have a working , or 2 working installations of ubuntu. The ubuntu mate (which is my favorite DE) is not successful. I am not any expert so no way to know how much is my fault and if or how much is a bug or issue with the installer. I used 3 separate methods to create the live dvd or usb too.

Yes, user can select UEFI mode or BIOS at boot time of installation, but somehow UEFI mode installation of opensuse (thumbleweed) works fine, but 1804 is not (on same disk and machine). Also UEFI mode installation 1804 on that machine displays "message" what it will be "manufactered mode" (as i remembered) and incorrectly defines (displays in partition table) all existing ext4 partition as "efi", and cant install grub on /dev/sdf(1), but tried on /dev/sda with failure message. -- You received this bug notification because you are subscribed to a duplicate bug report (1770787). https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1767703 Title: Calling 'apt-install grub-efi-amd64-signed' failed Status in grub-installer package in Ubuntu: Incomplete Bug description: /plugininstall.py: Exception during installation: /plugininstall.py: Traceback (most recent call last): /plugininstall.py: File "/usr/share/ubiquity/plugininstall.py", line 1739, in <module> /plugininstall.py: install.run() /plugininstall.py: File "/usr/share/ubiquity/plugininstall.py", line 61, in wrapper /plugininstall.py: func(self) /plugininstall.py: File "/usr/share/ubiquity/plugininstall.py", line 227, in run /plugininstall.py: self.configure_bootloader() /plugininstall.py: File "/usr/share/ubiquity/plugininstall.py", line 971, in configure_bootloader /plugininstall.py: "GrubInstaller failed with code %d" % ret) /plugininstall.py: ubiquity.install_misc.InstallStepError: GrubInstaller failed with code 1 ************************ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ MBR-EFI-GPT explanations/requirements: https://askubuntu.com/questions/500359/efi-boot-partition-and-biosgrub-partition https://askubuntu.com/questions/831216/how-can-i-reinstall-grub-to-the-efi-partition https://askubuntu.com/questions/578928/why-i-need-several-boot-partitions-efi-and-bios-grub +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Manual fix: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ubiquity/+bug/1766945/comments/3 also see: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub- installer/+bug/1763441/comments/2 https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2390700 ************************ ProblemType: Bug DistroRelease: Ubuntu 18.04 Package: ubiquity 18.04.14 ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 4.15.0-20.21-generic 4.15.17 Uname: Linux 4.15.0-20-generic x86_64 ApportVersion: 2.20.9-0ubuntu7 Architecture: amd64 CasperVersion: 1.394 CurrentDesktop: ubuntu:GNOME Date: Sat Apr 28 20:39:35 2018 InstallCmdLine: BOOT_IMAGE=/casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper only-ubiquity quiet splash --- LiveMediaBuild: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS "Bionic Beaver" - Release amd64 (20180426) ProcEnviron: LANGUAGE=de_DE.UTF-8 PATH=(custom, no user) XDG_RUNTIME_DIR=<set> LANG=de_DE.UTF-8 LC_NUMERIC=C.UTF-8 SourcePackage: grub-installer UpgradeStatus: No upgrade log present (probably fresh install) To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub-installer/+bug/1767703/+subscriptions -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1767703 Title: Calling 'apt-install grub-efi-amd64-signed' failed To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub-installer/+bug/1767703/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list email@example.com https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
