Bug Description

During Ubuntu installation on SolidRun HoneyComb LX2 workstation, an error occurs at the end of installation while setting up Grub. The error is caused by EFI SetVariable call fail. However, this results in a potentially non-bootable Ubuntu installation on the disk. The installer should instead place the default /efi/boot/bootaa64.efi boot loader, and the correct grub.cfg configuration to find and load the kernel and the initrd.

This issue happens with all versions of Ubuntu aarch64 (desktop and server), including 20.04.2, 20.10, and 21.04
