Screenshot of RPi in stuck boot state

Installing Leap Micro 5.2 on a Raspberry Pi 4 results in a non-bootable system with the error message "Firmware not found" (See screenshot).

I used the "Offline Image" for UEFI Arm 64-bit servers, `dd` it to a USB stick. The installer works fine and by using the provided default values I could install the system on a 64 GB SD-Card.

After finishing the installation and rebooting into the system, the internal bootloader complains about "Firmware not found" - See attached screenshot.

I updated the RPi bootloader to the most current version but still no bootable system. The system is stuck at the boot state, visible in the screenshot.

## Reproducer

* Use the "Offline image" for UEFI Arm 64-bit servers and dd it to any USB stick:

> dd if=openSUSE-Leap-Micro-5.2-DVD-aarch64-Build41.9-Media.iso of=/dev/sda bs=4M iflag=fullblock oflag=sync status=progress

* Disconnect the network to avoid https://bugzilla.opensuse.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1203795
* Boot the Raspberry Pi from this image, run the installation
* Install Leap Micro 5.2 using the default settings
* Reboot
* System cannot be booted

The problem is: raspberry-firmware packages are not part of 5.2, not even the on-line repositories. There is a maintenance update in progress.

5.3 GMC candidate build has those packages included, please, make sure that they are installed.

I mean SLE Micro 5.3 GMC candidate build; Leap Micro should get them as well.

Lubos, since I had a bug in the package list, please, check that....

Ack, I did use self-install image for 5.2 install on my rpi4, which is what we advertise to use.

Let's address this in 5.3 which will be out soon
