View Full Version : [ubuntu] Weird menu after updating

July 10th, 2011, 06:31 AM
I need help really quick. Ubuntu is getting glitchy and I need to update it, but there's something holding me back.

In the past, whenever I used to update, I would get some sort of GRUB Menu (if that's what it's called) after reboot, and I would have no idea of how to get into Ubuntu. This would eventually lead me to uninstall Ubuntu via Wubi because of frustration and lack of answers on the internet.

But not this time. I want the solution this time so I can be successful in updating. Can anybody PLEASE tell me what happened all of those times, and what I can do to prevent it from happening now? Please help ASAP.

see the wubi megathread for detailed info on this problem: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1639198

it doesn't affect 11.04 and a fresh 10.10 install. On 10.04.x you can avoid it by not updating packages grub-pc and grub-common.
