What I can see in the logs is this request for packages from the
ubiquity installer:

Start-Date: 2016-05-16  09:28:12
Requested-By: ubuntu (999)
Install: intel-microcode:amd64 (3.20151106.1), iucode-tool:amd64 (1.5.1-1, automatic)
End-Date: 2016-05-16  09:28:19

Followed 5 seconds later by a request to install EFI grub:

Start-Date: 2016-05-16  09:28:24
Commandline: apt-get --no-upgrade -o Acquire::gpgv::Options::=--ignore-time-conflict -y install grub-efi-amd64-signed
Install: grub-efi-amd64-bin:amd64 (2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3, automatic), grub-efi-amd64:amd64 (2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3, automatic), grub-efi-amd64-signed:amd64 (1.66+2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3)
Error: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
End-Date: 2016-05-16  09:28:26

It seems this must be an installer bug.  Mathieu, can you please look at
what is trying to install grub-efi on non-EFI systems and why?
