Summary0006140: Unable to run 'rear' for backups - neither grub-mkstandalone nor grub2-mkstandalone found
DescriptionFrom a Rocky 8 server the '/usr/bin/grub2-mkstandalone' command is provided by the 'grub2-tools-extra' package. Under Rocky 9.3 there is no such package, and it seems that no other package provides the grub2-mkstandalone command.
Steps To ReproduceInstall 'rear' and configure if required.
Then run 'rear -v mkrescue'.

Amongst the output it shows:

ERROR: Cannot make bootable EFI image of GRUB2 (neither grub-mkstandalone nor grub2-mkstandalone found)
