Bug#989593: installation report Raspberry Pi 4 UEFI

Hallo Marc,

Marc Haber <mh+debian-packages@zugschlus.de> (2021-06-08):

AFAICR (I'll get back to that soon enough) you should get a message
indicating which files were expected, so that you don't have to guess.

Was that with the text or graphical installer?

A quick grep across our source packages show 3 possibilities:
 - debootstrap
 - debian-installer-utils
 - apt-setup (code apparently copied from d-i-utils until some clean-up
   happens, which never did)

Simply /var/log/syslog for the main log. Other files are mentioned
