grub installation error after running apt-get update on ubuntu 16.04 droplet
I just ran the usual
apt-get update and
apt-get upgrade on my ubuntu 16.04.1 droplet. Grub was one of the packages to be updated, and during the update installations I received an error saying that it failed to install the new version of grub in
/dev/sda. Recently another user reported a similar issue on the ubuntu forums here and I haven’t seen any response there. I ended up at a dialog asking where grub should be installed and I selected three partitions (
/dev/vda1) as it recommended to select all of them if I was not sure. I got the same error about not being able to install on
/dev/sda1, so I selected OK in the ncurses dialog that appeared and the rest of the updates went smoothly it appears. Now I am worried if the droplet goes to reboot that it will not be able to get back to the OS. Any advice on how I should make sure that grub is working correctly? I’ll definitely take a snapshot just in. This droplet is using block storage as I’m running nextcloud via a snap package and wanted a lot of storage for the files.
