Hi Julian,

If possible, it would be very helpful to see the installer logs from
that system. The current stretch netinst images include both the
xfsprogs .deb and .udeb, and I've just checked that partman-xfs is
marking xfsprogs for installation (it is). Something has broken, and
logs may help us track it down.
