@oldfred; I understand your argument, but this doesn't take reality in
account. I've looked for similar bugs (very likely duplicates of this
one or visa versa) and there are more than 250 reports regarding grub
failures at the end of the installation or upgrade. In theory you are
right, in practice there are a lot of people who have troubles. The
Linux kernel itself is full of "reality patches" that defy theory but
Also take into account that the previous LTS installed fine and GRUB
behaved as expected, even when dual-booting Windows 7. It's really easy
to argue that this is a regression and should be fixed accordingly.
In conclusion; when a large portion of your user-base is experiencing
trouble where they don't expect it and/or had none before, it should be
fixed. Especially when a fix is (easily) feasible and expands the use of
Ubuntu and it derivatives considerably.
