That is not completely correct. Whether installation is queued or not
depends on the question if apt has already been configured or not
in /target, not on the presence of "|| true"". By the time grub-installer
is run, apt should _always_ be configured in /target and able to install
In short, we need to find out _why_ grub failed here.
Bob: Could you try to reproduce the error?
It would help very much if you could activate a trace for the script that
is run during installation by uncommenting the "set -x" near the top
of /usr/bin/grub-installer (after switching to VT2, using nano as
editor). You can do that for example during partitioning.
