I'll try to use fai.me to generate an iso with GUI and some package. 
After some tests, I think there is a problem with the simultaneous use of non-free and GUI enable (and may be backports enable to).

A minimal install with no GUI, non-free and backports enable work.
A minimal install with GUI and backports work.
But, with a minimal install with GUI, non-free and backports enable, there is a dependancy problem when fai install non-free package (linux-image-amd64: Depends linux-image-5.6.0-0.bpo.2-amd64 [...] but it is not going to be installed) 
You can see error.log and software.log at 1'20 and 2'28 in this virtualbox record output here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1M5bYxdHOiw0DerFxNmjwigD8utpPkuuS/view?usp=sharing
or reproduce the error with the ISO defined below.

Have you ever had this type of problem with fai.me and if so, how did you fix it?
