I trying install sparkyLinux 5.5 gameover edition and sparkyLinux 4.9 stable.
Always on ~84% of installation same error :

Boost.Python error in job "bootloader".
Command 'grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=Sparky --force' returned non-zero exit status 1.
grub-install: error: /usr/lib/grub/x86_64-efi/modinfo.sh doesn't exist. Please specify --target or --directory.

Traceback:
...on my screenshot : https://prnt.sc/lrtp9c (don't fear russian word on top of error - its translate like "installation failed")

info :
I have this error on my PC and notebook both.
I use iso 5.5 gameover and 4.9 - on both devices same error.
Other distros install correctly - linux mint 19, Q4OS, debian 8, lubuntu and other.
Device i use to intall - usb created with multiBoot - i have many distros on it.
http://liveusb.info/dotclear/ (site with this programm)
But other distros from that usb install correctly.
BIOS have UEFI and legacy accepted option.
But i don't have installed grub now(and i don't know i need install it to install sparky? other distros not needed)

I really want istall it cause many articles describe gameover edition like on of best to linux gaming. I trying now leave windows for good. But i need distro who have very good support steam(but not steam OS casuse i need dev tools and i really hate GNOME 3+ wm)

Please help - what i need do to install sparky?

P.S. sorry for my bad language skill, i from Russia

No one get this error before?

I see people write about same problem on manjaro :
https://forum.manjaro.org/t/installation-failed-error-in-job-bootloader/6046/5

...and chakra :
https://community.chakralinux.org/t/installation-failed-boost-python-error-in-job-bootloader/6312

My en_lang is bad and i don't understand - is solved find, but if i right - its all about UEFI
Maybe this is answer :

Looks like it could be calamares related issue, did you try to install sparky using Sparky Advanced Installer?
Nothing is easy as it looks.

No im not.
I know about it only now from your message.
Thanks great.

But i'm not really expirienced linux user.(and i not have good en_lang skill)
I dont understand from articles - how i can use it. Following this article : https://sparkylinux.org/wiki/doku.php/advanced_installer i have some question :

1) I just load live usb, gameover edition for example and use console, to use Sparky Advanced Installer(SAI next)?
2) Or i need download and use some special iso(minimal ISO, i right?) where SAI is included, and after then install "sparky-meta-game" on installed edition?
https://sparkylinux.org/wiki/doku.php/minimal
https://sparkylinux.org/wiki/doku.php/sparky_gameover
3) Or i can install SAI on live usb gameover edition from live usb console and then use article instruction?
4) Also, in articles about SAI i see using "sudo", if i run this command in sparky live usb what sudo/root pass i need use?

All Sparky iso images have the advanced installer preinstalled as a backup to the default one.
What you have to do is updating it in the live system, so...
Run GameOver live iso, open a terminal emulator and do:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
sudo apt install sparky-backup-core
Then run Advaned Installer from menu.
