Installer fails to find /boot/efi

I've been searching all over for an answer on this, and it seems like everyone else with this problem was doing goofy legacy vs uefi stuff (which I am not):

I'm trying to run Fedora 28 alongside Windows 10 and Debian 9. My system is UEFI, my partition table is GPT, Windows made an EFI partition, which I am asking the installer to recognize as "/boot/efi" and using manual partitioning

I get this error message when I attempt to select partitions for Fedora: "No valid boot loader target device found. See below for details. For a UEFI installation, you must include an EFI System Partition on a GPT - formatted disk, mounted at /boot/efi."

Like I said, I did all of that, and Debian and Windows are installed side-by-side with no issue, so what is the problem the Fedora installer is having here?

Let's see your disk config. Use gdisk and list the partitions in there (from Fedora).

When quoting something, select the quoted block and the click on the "101010" bottn. Like this

something like e.g.

17:14:40,039 INFO anaconda: /sbin/anaconda 21.48.21-1
17:14:40,132 INFO anaconda: 8126464 kB (7936 MB) are available
