    Strange error update message

    Just got this fault message on my 20.10 laptop. Havn't a clue what it means but nothing was installed.

    I saw the same yesterday from Software Updater. What I did was some terminal stuff. From the terminal history:
    1) hold this offending package:
    Code:
    sudo apt-mark hold grub-efi-amd64-signed*
    2) upgrade the rest:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    3) remove the hold on the package:
    Code:
    sudo apt-mark unhold grub-efi*
    4) upgrade again:
    Code:
    sudo apt upgrade
    Upgrade completed without further error.
