  grub2 (2.04-1ubuntu26.6) focal; urgency=medium

  * postinst.in, grub-multi-install: fix logic of skipping installing onto
    any device, if one chose to not install bootloader on any device. LP:
  * Do not finalize params twice on arm64. LP: #1897819

Version: 2.04-1ubuntu26.4 2020-09-16 01:06:14 UTC

  grub2 (2.04-1ubuntu26.4) focal; urgency=medium

  * grub-install: cherry-pick patch from grub-devel to make grub-install
    fault tolerant. Create backup of files in /boot/grub, and restore them
    on failure to complete grub-install. LP: #1891680
  * postinst.in: do not exit successfully when failing to show critical
    grub-pc/install_devices_failed and grub-pc/install_devices_empty
    prompts in non-interactive mode. This enables surfacing upgrade errors
    to the users and/or automation. LP: #1891680
  * postinst.in: do not attempt to call grub-install upon fresh install of
    grub-pc because it it a job of installers to do that after fresh
    install. Fixup for the issue unmasked by above. LP: #1891680
  * grub-multi-install: fix non-interactive failures for grub-efi like it
    was fixed in postinst for grub-pc. LP: #1891680
  * postinst.in: Fixup postinst.in, to attempt grub-install upon explicit
    dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc. LP: #1892526

Source diff to previous version
1891680 grub-pc needs to detect when debconf points to invalid drive and stop in preinst, before unpacking files, and also treat this as a failure in postins
1892526 dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc no longer prompts for grub-pc/install_devices

Version: 2.04-1ubuntu26.3 2020-08-31 14:07:06 UTC

  grub2 (2.04-1ubuntu26.3) focal; urgency=medium

  * 2.04-1ubuntu27 and 2.04-1ubuntu28 folded together for focal
  * debian/patches/ubuntu-flavour-order.patch:
    - Add a (hidden) GRUB_FLAVOUR_ORDER setting that can mark certain kernel
      flavours as preferred, and specify an order between those preferred
      flavours (LP: #1882663)
  * debian/patches/ubuntu-zfs-enhance-support.patch:
    - Use version_find_latest for ordering kernels, so it also supports
      the GRUB_FLAVOUR_ORDER setting.
  * debian/patches/ubuntu-dont-verify-loopback-images.patch:
    - disk/loopback: Don't verify loopback images (LP: #1878541),
      Thanks to Chris Coulson for the patch
  * debian/patches/ubuntu-recovery-dis_ucode_ldr.patch
    - Pass dis_ucode_ldr to kernel for recovery mode (LP: #1831789)
  * debian/patches/ubuntu-add-initrd-less-boot-fallback.patch:
    - Merge changes from xnox to fix multiple initrds support (LP: #1878705)
  * debian/patches/ubuntu-clear-invalid-initrd-spacing.patch:
    - Remove, no longer needed thanks to xnox's patch
  * Ensure that grub-multi-install can always find templates (LP: #1879948)

  grub2 (2.04-1ubuntu26.2) focal; urgency=medium

  * debian/postinst.in: Avoid calling grub-install on upgrade of the grub-pc
    package, since we cannot be certain that it will install to the correct
    disk and a grub-install failure will render the system unbootable.
    LP: #1889556.

1889556 grub-install failure does not fail package upgrade (and does not roll back to matching modules)
