      .Anaconda replaces the misleading error message when failing to boot an installation image

      Previously, when the installation program failed to boot the installation image, for example due to missing source of `stage2` specified in `inst.stage2` or `inst.repo`, Anaconda displayed the following misleading error message:

      ```
      /run/anaconda/initrd_errors.txt: No such file or directory
      ```
      With this update, Anaconda issues a proper warning message to minimize the confusion.

      Why is /run/anaconda/initrd_errors.txt (and /run/anaconda) missing?

      Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
      Not sure, whatever comes with Satellite 6.11 / RHEL 9

      How reproducible:
      Every time

      Steps to Reproduce:
      Run provisioning

      Actual results:
      Dropped to emergency shell

      Expected results:
      The actual error is shown

      Additional info:
      The failed installation is tracked in support ticket 03333044 and bug 2138320 but the missing initrd_errors.txt might be a general problem, masking the actual problem.

      I also filed a bug with dracut but they referred me to you guys:
