GNU Grub2 crashes Debian (9 and 10 and also 11) installation on my computer, see attached images. It seems to me that update-grub crash is a guilty component that blocks Debian to install.

All neccessary information about my grub are stored here:

I has been updated Debian 11 and the problem is still present.
