intel-microcode requires that a new initramfs is built upon install. Like anything else that would need to add new drivers to the initramfs, etc.

This requires special support on live media (i.e. the live media MUST have a rewriteable /boot partition which its bootloader will use, and must not have overlays there).

This is just a guess, but I'd say there is a good chance it is the issue you have...
