Hi,

I had exactly the same problem this morning. When looking around for answers I came across this question: "How to reinstall GRUB2 EFI?"

The answer includes the following:

Boot your computer with a live-USB/CD in UEFI mode. I had two boot options <flash_drive> and UEFI: <flash_drive>, the second is needed to expose the efi variables in /sys/firmware/efi/ so that efibootmgr don't fail later on.

Indeed when choosing the live-USB/CD to boot from, the same device is listed twice: once normal, once with "UEFI". I hadn't payed attention to that and just chose the first, which gave the issues you stated. When booting with the "UEFI" one, everything went just as it should.
