Unsupported reboot option reboot-fastboot

When I tried to install a customized Android 10 to Pixel 3a, the following error occurred.

$ export ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT=`pwd`; fastboot flashall -w

Rebooting into fastboot                            FAILED (remote: 'Unsupported reboot option reboot-fastboot')
fastboot: error: Command failed

I could solve this problem by installing a bootloader with the same build version and running flashall again. Corresponding bootloaders are included in factory images availabe in this page.
