(Solved) GNU Grub 2.02-2ubuntu 8.6

Post by Planet33 » Sun Oct 14, 2018 9:05 am

I recently installed Mint 19 for a dual boot with win 7. Couple days ago, the GNU Grub 2.02-2ubuntu 8.6 version of Grub showed up on the updater. I hesitate if grub gets borked I can’t boot. Any problems for others?? My current grub is working fine. Any reason to update or leave as is?? Thank you.

Why would it be a problem? In this computer version 2.02~beta2-9ubuntu1.2 is installed.

If you don't have a problem then it's generally not important to keep the bootloader up to date, but there should also not be any harm, it's a good update which actually fixes compatibility issues with Win7.

I've updated it and didn't have a problem. When it updates, it'll ask if you want to keep the current configuration. Pick yes to keep your settings presently.
IF your problem has been solved, please edit your original post and add [SOLVED] to the beginning of the Subject Line. It helps other members.
