That was the initial error report, however, the subsequent report is
more complex:

Hmm. Maybe this has something to do with dash not being pre-installed
by the installer. Needs testing in a Grip chroot.

That's the wrong system info too - still waiting for #525211 to be
fixed before reporting bugs directly from Emdebian Grip.

Actual arch was i386.
