I came across this too recently, because of a bug in the efivar package
that affects some platforms:

So I downgraded it in 887fe1fbde7d72788ec348ab4665e1df3d0d704f.  Which
commit did you run the reconfigure command on?

A bigger problem is that GRUB will happily wipe the bootloader entry,
proceed to try to make a new one which fails, and then exit with status
code 0.  I wonder if this has been reported upstream.
