Okay, I took your suggestion and updated the base.txz file with my updated packages. That was fairly easy to accomplish... except I am not getting the attached error when during installation... I will start over and see if I can reproduce this...

No problem here. The installation image with additional binary packages in base.txz included, copied on a USB stick, does install without any errors.

Okay, I redid the steps and recreated the .img file. This time when I did the installation, I did not get that error... So that is fantastic! Not sure why it was messed up...

However, now I am stuck with another issue related to USB... I do not recall having this issue with the original memstick .img file. I will retry the installation with the original and see if I get the error...

Okay, after further research in the forums and installing from the original memstick .img file, the message still happens... The boot does eventually succeeds... which is good.

Anyways, I believe this solutions finally works and I have a custom installation .img file!

Thank you so much for the wonder help... it is much appreciated!
