I had to switch to GRUB EFI and after reboot, I was prompted with a GRUB 

It seems to be because grub-install install the grub.cfg in EFI/devuan 
while the grub binary explicitly search in EFI/debian :
# strings /boot/efi/EFI/devuan/grubx64.efi |grep EFI/

Copying the grub.cfg in EFI/debian/ fixed the issue, so maybe we should 
recompile the GRUB binary with devuan paths ?
