Well, if she just chose not to update the grub package at all, e.g. by unticking it in Synaptic, I don't see that causing issues for now.fehlix wrote: ↑Mon Nov 12, 2018 11:58 amNote the Grub-upgrades last step with user interaction of selecting installing into MBR,Eadwine Rose wrote: ↑Mon Nov 12, 2018 11:53 amBasically when something like this happens I stop updating my system altogether so it stays in the state it is in and other things won't wreak havoc.

This basically happens to me every year around this time, so I am used to it by now *giggle*
is nothing else as what you have with MX Boot Repair. You might more comfortable using "MX Boot Repair" because it is more known,
Grub-upgrade does exactly the same. No place for fear, uncertainty and doubt.
Yes, if she upgraded grub package but then didn't do a grub-install, then there might be issues. But just holding off completely from upgrading grub shouldn't be an issue in a non-rolling Debian distro, right? Does grub package have many dependencies?
