Preseed file worked in 14.04.2, no longer works for 14.04.4

Hi all, 

I am running into an issue where I am receiving a popup from the
installer saying that "You have chosen not to install Grub..." I was not
receiving this popup for my 14.04.2 repository, this is new after
upgrading to 14.04.4 and using the exact same preseed file. 

I do want Grub installed of course. This is on a UEFI booted machine
that has a single drive (sda). The following is the part of my preseed
file that does the grub installation and package selection. Any ideas
what I could be missing? 

Thanks for the help! 

### Boot loader installation

d-i grub-installer/only_debian boolean false
d-i grub-installer/bootdev string /dev/sda
d-i grub-installer/with_other_os boolean true

### Package selection

d-i pkgsel/include string bash nfs-common openssl isc-dhcp-client
libc-bin linux-image-server openssh-server openssh-client wget vim ntp
rsync busybox-static gawk dnsutils nis autofs ethtool finger lua5.1
lua-posix lua-filesystem man strace ksh linux-headers-server alien
dpkg-dev debhelper build-essential tcl libvirt-bin autoconf libnl1 lsof
libvirt0 graphviz m4 curl gcc gfortran pciutils quilt automake1.10 dkms
dpatch autotools-dev tk libltdl-dev swig flex tk8.4 automake
python-libxml2 bison chrpath tcl8.4 libaio1 at efibootmgr parted
