I used netinst CD image, then the first testing CD image (grud**.deb is actually in both) but I have the exact same problem..Please quote the exact error message, a paraphrased error message is useless.
Not my bug report, but I'm seeing similar error messages...When I'm doing test install runs right now using a custom made d-i image (which is preseeded to use unstable for udebs and debs), I get an error installing nfs-common.
It tries to access /var/lib/nfs/state which does not exist and fails. Later when its time to install grub, the errors from the failed nfs-common install remain and the installer seems to think that it failed to install grub (even though it succeded).
A workaround was to do a mkdir -p /target/var/lib/nfs/state before the grub install step. Perhaps this is the bug the OP is seeing?
I've attached a screenshot of the failure messages related to nfs-common.
