Did you end up with a system without any kernel packages, or did you run into the problem that the kernel files (initrd, vmlinuz) were not correctly copied into the /boot directory (i.e. a boot loader problem)?

If you are sure that this is a bug and not caused by anything else, then please follow to report it.

The package name for the installer is "ubiquity",

The developers would like see the contents of the installer logs (e.g. /var/log/installer/syslog). If you have them still available, then you should add them to the bug report.

Are you sure it didn't install GRUB but installed the kernel OK. This is more likely

Thanks guys,

I was able to create a bug and attached installer logs there -

Also I am pretty sure that kernel wasn't installed.

To identify root cause I installed debian(which was operating normally ) to validata that it is not a secureboot isuue or something lke this. And then tried to manually boot ubuntu from debian's grub cli (ubuntu's grub didn't show up and reboot system ).
