Are you sure, you are using fai 5.9.4 on your fai server, where you
call fai-make-fnsroot? What's the output of this command?
$ dpkg -l |grep fai-

fai-make-nfsroot should also install the package dracut-live which is
not done in your logs. The only reason I know so far is not using FAI

Inside fai-make-fnsroot we call these commands to check if the two new
dracut packages are available.

    $ROOTCMD apt show dracut-live dracut-squash >/dev/null 2>/dev/null
    if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
        pkgs+=" dracut-live dracut-squash"
