`grub-efi-amd64-signed’ package failed to install into /target/

Refurb'd desktop, new enough to have UEFI enabled by default in BIOS.

Secure-boot is disabled.

I go for the basic, default disk setup, allowing installer to use entire disk and setup the partitions (~0.5Gb ESP partition, SWAP and / partitions).

But the install fails to install a bootloader and I end up with the error in the subject line.

Any ideas what the issue could be? It used to be straightforward installing linux with a grub in the MBR. Not sure what is going on now. Any help appreciated. Thks.

Re: `grub-efi-amd64-signed’ package failed to install into /target/

You have given so little informaation...

Did you install Lithium or Helium? (I recommend using Lithium).
Is the disk bigger than 4 TB?
Did the Debian installer give any error?  (if you use graphical installer, you can do screendump from installation)
Anny error in installation logs in /var/log/installer/, especialley in syslog? Grub install should be mentioned there.
Is /boot fully populated?

I have onley installed two efi-bades ps's , no problem with them.

If you installed Lithium, can you try boot in rescumode and reinstall grub,
