To be fair, this kind of bug in an update is thankfully pretty rare.  I think it's probably a good idea to at least "lurk" in the forums a bit before applying updates.  I would update only twice a week or so, to give it time for news to hit the forums and workarounds posted or updates fixed.

One thing I really liked about Mint (back when my aging hardware could run Mint Xfce) was the updater that helped me avoid bugaboos like this one.

Then there must be another issue here. Run the following commands:

Code: [Select]
sudo leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list
post the file contents here. Then:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
apt policy grub-pc
