"grub" deal with booting, not shut-down, tho some boot setting might affect the shutdown.

But if i try ,,update-grub“,
Linux say my that he cant find the command.

Try

Code: Select all

which update-grub

or

Code: Select all

locate update-grub

but it's very possible that the LiveUSB doesn't have update-grub because it boots differently, and because you can't save changes to it. (if you changed its LiveUSB booting, it won't stay that way).

The "update-grub" command is a priv command.

Try this:

Code: Select all

sudo update-grub
