Do you have a u-boot on the eMMC or is the u-boot from which
you load the installer started from an SD card?

The debian-installer doesn't itself install u-boot as a part of
the installation process but instead assumes that there already
is a u-boot available on the system, because otherwise the
installer couldn't have been booted :-).  If your u-boot is on
the SD card, you install to the eMMC and then remove the SD card,
this assumption isn't true anymore. So one attempt at a solution
could be to manually install u-boot to the eMMC.

Does your u-boot build support two MMC devices - i.e. SD card and
eMMC - at the same time (IIRC that is a build time config option
in u-boot)? If yes, you could start u-boot from the SD card
and then boot the rest of the system from the eMMC.
