[Ubuntu] New /boot/grub/menu.lst after `apt-get upgrade`?
Just started a new droplet with Docker.
I wanted to make sure I have the newest version, so I ran
apt-get update and
apt-get upgrade after which I got the following in Terminal:
A new version of /boot/grub/menu.lst is available, but the version │ installed currently has been locally modified. │ What would you like to do about menu.lst? │ install the package maintainer's version │ keep the local version currently installed │ show the differences between the versions │ show a side-by-side difference between the versions │ show a 3-way difference between available versions │ do a 3-way merge between available versions (experimental) │ start a new shell to examine the situation
I’ve never edited the
menu.lst file, I imagine this is something done by DO.
What exactly is happening here, and what option should I select?
