Draft: Warn user if any error occurred during first boot repartitioning

segfault requested to merge 20163-warn-user-about-corrupted-gpt into stable

Previously we only checked if the GUID was randomized. We saw error reports which showed that the backup GPT was corrupt, which caused fatresize to fail and the Persistent Storage partition to fail to be created.

We now show the "Something went wrong when starting your Tails USB stick for the first time" message if any error occurs during first boot repartitioning or if the GPT is corrupt or the system partition not correctly resized.

Closes #20163
