Tara Install Fails to fully install Grub [SOLVED]

Post by brcre » Sat Jul 21, 2018 1:24 pm

Answer: the *_v2 of the install iso

My question will start very basic.
I'm trying to install Tara.
I'm using a live DVD.
Other than having the system encrypted, and my home drive encrypted it is a basic install.
Use the full 120G SSD drive.
I don't set up the partitions myself.

The question.
What do I need to run to gather the data needed to seek help?

/dev/sda1: UUID="DD0C-C6BC" TYPE="vfat" PARTLABEL="EFI System Partition" PARTUUID="b7d9fbad-4e38-4dcf-9ed7-87369dffd056"
/dev/sda2: UUID="51946d35-ac5d-4bf2-953c-3c470a961b15" TYPE="ext4" PARTUUID="343baf22-7216-464f-88a4-47f6cb2a29fb"
/dev/sr0: UUID="2018-06-26-15-38-36-00" LABEL="Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon 64-bit" TYPE="iso9660" PTUUID="3a7dc2fc" PTTYPE="dos"
/dev/mapper/mint--vg-swap_1: UUID="2cbd2d2d-cfa2-4c42-af51-7021a0756ff9" TYPE="swap"

Error says:
The 'grub-efi-amd64-signed' package failed to install into /target/
It says when the window closes I'll have a chance to submit a bug report, however it has never given me that option, so there appears to be a bug in the bug reporting side of the install disc.

After the error I try to recover by running update-grub and get
/usr/sbin/grub-probe:error:failed to get canonical path of /cow


The question.
What do I need to run to gather the data needed to seek help?

No
But after you mentioned it, I did try and the install completed successfully as expected!
Thank You,
