Description of problem:
In order to build a whole disk image for uefi for RHEL 8, python3 packages need to be included and DIB_VERSION must be set to 3.

Looks like it is this RHEL 8 issue - https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1678634. From https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1678634#c6 suggests removing grub2-efi-x64.
Grub issue in RHEL is tracked here https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1680572, and it looks like there is a fix available in 8.1 - grub2-2.02-74, RHEL-8.1.0-20190701.0.
What I recommend is:
- close this bug as Verified since this bug was for creating the the UEFI whole disk image which does work now
- I'll create a new bug tracking this "Failed to switch root:..." issue with a dependency on the RHEL bug and the grub fix being available in RHEL 8.1.
Added https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1749310 to track the RHEL issue.
Agreed and we do see successful image now being built so we can now move to verify this bug.
