View Full Version : Rlease upgrade to Vivid not workin correctly

April 28th, 2015, 10:15 PM
On my HTPC the upgrade from Utopic to Vivid did not complete.
The PC has a history of year of correct upgrades.
Also note I already used the experimental version of systemd under Utopic.

What happens now is that grub fails to complete the upgrade and blocked other packages.

The error I get is that the configuration fails when executing /usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig with the error

/usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig: 1: /etc/default/grub.d/init-select.cfg: get-init: not found

/etc/default/grub.d/init-select.cfg contains a single line:


the point seems to be that the get-init is bundled with the init-select package, that is included in Debian Jessie, but it was not included in Vivid (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/vivid/+missingpackages?batch=75&memo=150&start=150).
For the moment I commented the single offending line in /etc/default/grub.d/init-select.cfg and completed the installation.

Do you have on your installations the same reference to get-init in /etc/default/grub.d/init-select.cfg?
Is get-init present on your system? If so how?
Any suggestion?
Is, e.g., safe to try to install the package from the Debian repo even if it was left out?

thanks in advance
