[SOLVED] grub-install not found anywhere

I put BL on a new machine and GRUB failed to install. I finished the BL install and ran the live USB, only to find that grub-install and update-grub were missing. They also didn't exist in apt's repositories.

$ sudo grub-install /dev/nvme0n1 && sudo update-grub
sudo: grub-install: command not found
$ sudo apt-get install grub-install update-grub

deb http://deb.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main contrib non-free
deb http://pkg.bunsenlabs.org/debian bunsen-hydrogen main

Any ideas?

Re: [SOLVED] grub-install not found anywhere

They are in the package 'grub2-common'. Try installing that.

(Menu -> Help&Resources -> Debian -> Package Search, and search for files in package contents wink )

Re: [SOLVED] grub-install not found anywhere

Thanks, damo.

I installed 'grub2-common' to no avail. It installed successfully but gave me the same error message. I searched the package contents and came up with 'grub-installer' but it could not be found in the repos. I'm at a loss here.  sad

Re: [SOLVED] grub-install not found anywhere

The standard kernel & GRUB packages in BunsenLabs don't work with NVMe devices sad

Workaround here:

I would actually recommend Debian stretch instead at this point; we have a "Helium-dev" (Diproton) experimental netinstall script that could be applied to a bare stretch base system:

Re: [SOLVED] grub-install not found anywhere

So, using the Helium netinstall script on top of a base Stretch installation worked like a charm! Thanks HoaS! Also, thanks damo! smile
