Attached is the file /var/log/installer/syslog which I am assuming is the same thing. Note this was installed using my workaround of adding grub to the list of packages to install, but it did still give me the warning about not installing, but when I hit "Continue" it worked fine.

Could you post /var/log/syslog from the installer, please? You can extract it using the "Save debug logs" item from the installer main menu.
(I suspect you may have failed to deal with the Release signature properly, but the syslog should confirm or deny that.)
