Configuration file `/etc/grub.d/10_linux'
==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
What would you like to do about it ? Your options are:
Y or I : install the package maintainer's version
N or O : keep your currently-installed version
D : show the differences between the versions
Z : start a shell to examine the situation
The default action is to keep your current version.
*** 10_linux (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ?

1/ they are already working
2/ they may (should) contain custom/local tuning that would be overwritten if you would replace them with newer default config files
If however the new release of the upgraded software needs real changes or bring new config features over the older one, you will still find the new default config file(s) with an added ".new" suffix. You can then review later which changes you may wish to - manually - apply into your existing config files.
