Bug Description

Looking at the upstream calamares code there doesn't seem to be any support for the arm architectures. Currently the bootloader code only deals with i386/amd64. Whilst armhf can be a bit of a mess, I believe there is now a consensus forming around grub on arm64/aarch64. It would be great if this could be added.

Similarly calamares-settings-ubuntu is not geared for the 'ports' architectures. The repo address is wrong and again the different bootloaders are not supported.

Ubiquity works well with armhf/u-boot powerpc/yaboot. Calamares is definitely inferior in this regard.
