Just to verify, can you please check the USB vendor and product ID of
your device?  It should be 0403:f208.

Good.  Can you try and get us some log output
from the installer?  BRLTTY will log to a console, maybe
you can get sighted assistance to check if there are any errors reported?
As you can guess, its rather hard to reproduce this issue, I dont have
access to an EL80S, neither directly nor via borrowing...
