    Re: Errors were encountered while processing: grub-efi-amd64-signed

    stephanomuri1 - Hello

    The error is in regards to the grub-efi-amd64-signed package.
    See in terminal:
    Code:
    apt show grub-efi-amd64-signed
    I do not recall when the change to Version 2 happened - but I bet it applies in your case.
    what shows:
    Code:
    apt policy grub-efi-amd64-signed
    and consider installing the grub-efi-amd64-signed package.

    my bit to try and help

    Description: GRand Unified Bootloader, version 2 (EFI-AMD64 version, signed)
     GRUB is a portable, powerful bootloader.  This version of GRUB is based on a
     cleaner design than its predecessors, and provides the following new features:
     .
      - Scripting in grub.cfg using BASH-like syntax.
      - Support for modern partition maps such as GPT.
      - Modular generation of grub.cfg via update-grub.  Packages providing GRUB
        add-ons can plug in their own script rules and trigger updates by invoking
        update-grub.
     .
     This package contains a version of GRUB built for use with the EFI-AMD64
     architecture, signed with Canonical's UEFI signing key.


    i can't reinstall it, I tried other ways from the forums, but it didn't help, still the same errors....

    stephanomuri1; Hummm

    Package manager do confirm "grub-efi-amd64-signed" is installed.

    So, we try and get the package manager to tell us why it is so unhappy.
    confirm to us what release we are working with - that the correct versions of packages are installed:
    Code:
    lsb_release -a
    proof to us that all packages are up-2-date
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade
    And next if all is as spiffy as can be under the circumstances -- we get the package manager to try and tell us what ails it.

    gots to be a reason

    I reinstalled grub2 via boot repair using live usb and the error did not go away, the packages are still corrupted..
    Code:
    @: lsb_release -a
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 24.04 LTS

    Re: Errors were encountered while processing: grub-efi-amd64-signed

    stephanomuri1; Oh

    24.04 and grub issues ...
    Just to rule out ( was in my case) a splash hick-up
    Boot to grub's boot menu -
    e key for edit mode
    In this screen arrow down to the "linux" line and remove "quiet splash"
    ctl+x to continue the boot.
    log in.
    Does
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    now run error free - by some slight chance ?

    else next we try and reconfigure the package and see what the system reports.

    there's fix somewhere

    I had the same issue with GRUB before. What worked for me was booting from a live USB, mounting my Linux partition, and then reinstalling GRUB from the terminal. Make sure you know which partition your system is on and follow a guide if needed. This fixed the problem for me. Hopefully, it helps you too!

    Re: Errors were encountered while processing: grub-efi-amd64-signed

    Unfortunately only a complete reinstallation of linux helped, something was corrupted from the system files, but I'm not too cool user of linux to look for some small bug that caused this, after a complete reinstallation all the errors disappeared related to this).
