Well, there was several problems in the past. The reason is that the
script do a xfs_freeze and then try to install the boot loader on that
file system. I do not know if this is fixed in the current version.
However, starting install-grub in the first shell and then xfs_freeze -u
in a second do fix the problem. But this is only a workaround.
