    Update grub-efi-amd64 on 14.04

    Can't update grub-efi-amd64 package on MacBook Pro.
    Got the output
    Code:
    Setting up grub-efi-amd64 (2.02~beta2-6) ...
    Installing for x86_64-efi platform.
    grub-install: error: cannot open `/boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi': No such file or directory.
    dpkg: error processing package grub-efi-amd64 (--configure):
     subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
    Errors were encountered while processing:
      grub-efi-amd64
    Actual path to boot.efi is
    Code:
    /boot/efi/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi
    How to fix?

    Re: Update grub-efi-amd64 on 14.04

    I'm thinking to make symlink from /boot/efi/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi to /boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi
    But I'm think that better solution is to change grub configuration, but I don't know how to do this.

    Any suggestions are welcome)

    I wish I could help you but I know nothing about a MacBook Pro. I wonder if you couldn't just install grub-pc instead of grub-efi-amd64.

    I'm pretty sure it's up to you which one to go with but am not totally sure. You could check this out. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI

    And this thread.

    Maybe to try and run at #root through recovery mode.

    Thanks for suggestions, but I'm able to boot into Ubuntu, I just can't upgrade the grub-efi-amd64 package.

    Re: Update grub-efi-amd64 on 14.04

    The previous error was because of the /boot/efi partition was mounted as read-only. After remounting it as read-write I have got the same error like in the https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...2/+bug/1282375
    Code:
    Setting up grub-efi-amd64 (2.02~beta2-6) ...
