Run this check first:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
Code: [Select]
apt policy grub-pc
If it does not report in the first 2 lines:

Code: [Select]
grub-pc:
  Installed: 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.11
  Candidate: 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.11

The updated packages are not available in your Countries repos yet.

Run the above commands once a day until you show the above version.

Buggy version:

2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.10

Fixed, updated version:

2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.11

When I run the above commands I get:

grub-pc:
  Installed: 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.9
  Candidate: 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.9

It looks to me that I am running 3.9 not 3.10 or 3.11. I usually check for updates once or twice a day. Does this mean I should update or not?

Coastie, the answer is in the 2nd command, 'If it does not...'

Using Lite Tweaks, I restored package management to default. (I had changed it to USA Atlantic because I had read it would be faster.) Ran commands again in terminal and the grub update was available so I updated without any problem.
