Bug Description

Tried to upgrade a 17.04 to 18.04 beta 2, without wiping system. I removed all directories on the SSD except home before the install.

Just error aborted on "grub-efi-amd64-signed failed to install"

SSD is formatted as 3 partitions, bios/swap/root

# fdisk -l /dev/sda
Disk /dev/sda: 477 GiB, 512110190592 bytes, 1000215216 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
