Looking at the log files list-oem didn't find any packages.

Feb 11 20:41:54 ubuntu-mate ubiquity[1816]: ubuntu-drivers list-oem finished with no available packages. Maybe we need to apt update? Doing that and trying again.
Feb 11 20:41:54 ubuntu-mate ubiquity[1816]: We've already apt updated and run, not doing so again.
Feb 11 20:41:54 ubuntu-mate ubiquity[1816]: No, we didn't find any OEM packages again.
