Do not make it too difficult for yourself... putting linux on an external drive needs you to have a grub that is correct but also an fstab that is correct.

Google for install linux on external harddisk.

This can give you some insights

You need to know the exact number of your external harddisk.

So can you make Calamares put the hooks in the correct order?
I've had this issue, too and would have wished for the installer to do the job itself.

I don't find it unusual to install ArcoLinux on a USB stick, or better an external SSD, which is blazingly fast on USB 3.0 / 3.1.
I've done it even with LUKS and a fully encrypted drive (boot, root and home).
