[SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

I installed bl about 3 months ago, but had to switch distros do to wlan driver issues. I'm ready to re-install bl, but I am now getting an error when update-grub tries to run during the installation. This is the same machine with the same live-usb from 3 months prior, so i don't know what could have changed.
I downloaded the latest version from the main site, double checked it's sha256sum and dd it to another usb
same issue
I get a message during install to run vmlinux and target root=/dev/sda but i don't know enough about the grub bash shell to do that.

Are we allowed to know the content of this mysterious error message or is this to be a guessing game?

Can we please see the full output of this command:

sudo parted --list

The error for 'update-grub' doesn't give much info other than "grub failed to update. This is a fatal error" and that the OS will not be able to boot until it's corrected. I'm then given the options to retry that portion of the install or continue and use the vmlinux command to manually boot the OS.

Re: [SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

^ Arch packages the UEFI and non-UEFI versions of GRUB together but Debian splits them and does away with the (very confusing) target={x86_64-efi,i386-pc} option so that guide doesn't apply to us.

Try again with a fresh ISO image, I can't remember when we added UEFI support but your GPT drive will now need this — it must have been formatted with an msdos partition table last time but now that it is GPT it will need either a BIOS boot partition (to boot in Legacy mode, this is not advised) or to install in UEFI mode (which will require a current ISO image).

Re: [SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

Make sure that UEFI mode is enabled and CSM or "Legacy" mode is disabled in your firmware ("BIOS") options when the ISO image is booted.

You can check if the installer is booted in UEFI mode by switching to a console with <Ctrl>+<Alt>+F3 and checking if /sys/firmware/efi/ exists.

The output of

sudo efibootmgr -v

from the "live" session may be useful; we can also check the contents of the EFI system partition:

sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
find /mnt

Please be sure to use code tags for the output as it may be lengthy.

Re: [SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

That would explain the error.

We can try a hack fix (my speciality), from the "live" session:

sudo -i
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
mkdir -p /mnt/EFI/BOOT
cp /mnt/EFI/bunsenlabs/grubx64.efi /mnt/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI
reboot

Your motherboard should then load (EFI)GRUB automatically once Legacy mode is disabled.

Alternatively, re-run the installer in UEFI mode to generate an NVRAM entry to boot $ESP/EFI/bunsenlabs/grubx64.efi

That should not happen.

Please post the exact command(s) used to transfer the ISO image to the USB stick.

My "hack fix" should work anyway.

Re: [SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

i transfered the iso to the usb with


sudo dd if=/path/to/iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M ; sync

which is how i normally make the usb

the UEFI boot order is USB CD/DVD, USB Diskette, Internal HD, network adapter

For the hack fix, should i install the OS and ignore the update-grub error and let it install in full?
I think my last attempt I aborted install.

edit-
Will the hack fix work with an encrypted hard drive?

Re: [SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

More info!

I tried to install the OS again, going with the simplest guided partition setup, then performed the hack fix.

I rebooted and changed the bios settings back to EFI then opened up boot options with the live usb still plugged in
I had the fallowing options-

OS manager bunsenlabs
USB thumb drive (EFI)
open EFI file

i tried each, with the efi file option leading me to the BOOTX64.EFI file from the hack fix.

All returned the error 'image can not be Authenticated'.

I then set bios to legacy mode and checked my boot options again. I now had the addition of USB thumb drive and internal hard drive.
Selecting USB got me the bunselab live usb selection screen but with chunkier graphics. selecting USB (EFI) got me the normal bunsenlab live selection screen.
Anything else just dumped me into grub shell


EDIT- SUCCESS!

i booted into the older looking bunsenlab live selection screen and installed from there. I guessed it would be the splash screen i would get on non EFI hardware and it installed GRUB without issue. I'm now up and running on a fesh install!

The EFI authintication appear to be  firmware issue on my side?? Not sure but no longer an issue so don't care. Thank you for your help, see you in another thread about me being incompetent at linux

Re: [SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

Sounds like a secure boot problem to me. There are two aspects to efi, one being efi and the other being secure boot.

^ This.

Had you disabled Secure Boot then your system would have booted, I think.

However:

i booted into the older looking bunsenlab live selection screen and installed from there. I guessed it would be the splash screen i would get on non EFI hardware and it installed GRUB without issue. I'm now up and running on a fesh install!

Sounds like a non-UEFI installation worked, confirm by running this command from the installed system:

[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo Legacy

It would be interesting to see your partition layout now if you don't mind posting the output of `sudo parted --list` again.

So far everything seems to be going smoothly on the new install and the back-ported kernal upgrade appears to have improved  wlan performance

Re: [SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

OK, thanks, that confirms that you now have a non-UEFI system and an msdos partition table, as suspected.

The system should work fine as it is but UEFI does offer more flexibility for multiboot systems, IMO.

The only remaining question is why the UEFI installation did not work — our Deuterium images are supposed to support that (and do, in my experience)  hmm

Re: [SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

I am fairly sure there are bios's out there that do not properly implement disabling secure boot according to Microsoft's specifications. With them, if UEFI is on, then so is secure boot and there is no way to disable secure boot eithout also disabling UEFI. This is not acoording to Microsoft's desgn specification.  The op might not have noticed the switch to turn it off as well. I am unsure where Debian stands in relation to secure boot. I do know, back when I was messing with it, setting up self-signed keys was a real pain.

Those 12.73 TiB drives are actually what the industry calls 14TB drives X 4, enterprise at that (cost me over $1,000).  Google "WUH721414ALE604"  I move data at the speed of light. Yes, they are raided.  Almost every thing in both systems are.  I am going to give you an example:
ID-8: /dev/sdd type: USB vendor: HP model: MB012000GWDFE size: 21.83 TiB  Google "MB012000GWDFE" a 12 TB drive, why is it 21.83 TiB? Raided 0 X 2 12TB enterprise drives in a hardware USB cabinet, thank you USB 3.2.  10 Gigabit each and every one.  The 4 X 14's I can saturate a NVME drive at 56TB.  Think about that.

I wonder what a 56TB NVME would cost me?  I can promise you more then $1,000.00

Re: [SOLVED] update-grub fails at install

I've recently encountered a similar issue to that in the OP. I edited the grub config file so the the system would boot into whichever the previous OS was, instead of the same default one every time. I used sudo update-grub to update this but on rebooting nothing had changed. I've done this plenty of time before so I know it works.
I have another Bunsenlabs installation on the system and modifying grub worked from that, so it doesn't seem to be the hardware. (it could be done from a live system too probably)

Obviously this worked fine on install (the kernel was 4.19.0-6) and now the kernel is 4.19.0-16. The kernel of the OS that successfully updated grub is 4.19.0.9 (32bit)

ETA: on further investigation it seems that grub menus update ok, it's just this particular option doesn't work, which I activate by adding:

GRUB_DEFAULT=saved
GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT=true

to /etc/default/grub
