4.15.0-43-generic so they are the same I stand corrected. Must be something in the newer 19.1

Re: Grub EFI amd 64 signed signed package fails on clean install mint 19

Just disconnect from the Internet. Install Mint19 then reconnect to the Internet, then Get the Updates. For the Codec's Install using the software manager.
When you get the updates you will get the Grub Signed one also. No big deal. It works Just a few extra steps.

Re: Grub EFI amd 64 signed signed package fails on clean install mint 19

Harry I think you are probably right since I installed LM19 on a couple of other SSD's a couple of days ago without a problem on the same computer.
