    Grub resets to grub prompt

    I have elementary OS and Windows 10 on dual boot. Grub was working fine after installation but after a while I started ending up with a blank screen with just the grub prompt instead of my usual boot choices.
    Running boot-repair via a live USB stick ends up with "An error occurred during the repair" message. I have tried the following suggestion on the same boot-repair error message dialog "Please do not forget to make your BIOS boot on sdb1/EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi". I used bcdedit when in Windows command prompt as suggested. This still did not resolve the issue.

    Here is the pastebin url from the BootInfo summary generated by boot-repair.

    The output from `efibootmgr -v` is given below

    BootCurrent: 0002
    Timeout: 0 seconds
    BootOrder: 0002,0000,0001,2001,2002,2003

    Boot0002* ubuntu HD(1,GPT,180eecda-c824-46e1-965c-d739700810b1,0x800,0x32000)/File(\EFI\ubuntu\shimx64.efi)RC
    Boot2001* EFI USB Device RC
    Boot2002* EFI DVD/CDROM RC
    Boot2003* EFI Network RC

    Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you for your assistance.

    Moved to Other OS since not Ubuntu.

    Acer has required "trust". Did you enable that since entries are shown as Ubuntu, not unknown which is what Acer initially shows.
    Acer Trust Settings - details, some now report that then secure boot has to be on to set trust: & &
