Hm. Now that it seems to me the serial console problem could be related. Try
if this work ?

grub2-install --modules=serial

It returns:
Installing for arm-uboot platform.
grub2-install: warning: no hints available for your platform. Expect
reduced performance.
grub2-install: error: cannot open `/usr/share/grub2/arm-uboot/serial.mod':
No such file or directory.

And there is no grub.efi in /usr/share/grub2/arm-uboot/ is it expected?

Sorry I think the correct command is :

grub2-install --with-platform=arm-efi -no-nvram --removable --modules=serial

The default architecture of grub utility we packaged for armv7 is arm-uboot.
While running it will detect efi firmware through the presence of
/sys/firmware/efi and change the installation to arm-efi architecture
accordingly. For the EFI on U-Boot, no efi boot variable on the system so no
/sys/firmware/efi, therefore we need to manually specify the platform
parameters for grub-install (This is also how update-bootloader handles it)
