I have trouble understanding what you mean by "to upgrade
initramfstools in mod edebootstrap".

Could you give us the messages that appear on the fourth console? As
Aurélien was explaining, if something is on-interactive when
installed, then *this* package has a bug, not d-i.

Unless we can find which package to reassign this bug report, I think
we should close it. Having D-I to wait indefinitely when a package is
prompting the user is *normal* behavior for D-I (the faulty part is
tha package).
