Default Bug#574031: linux-image-2.6.32-3-amd64: Failed to upgrade to version 2.6.32-3-amd64

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-9
Severity: critical
Justification: breaks the whole system

Hi,

as you can see i have not rebooted my machine yet, which is reasonable because my machine would
be probably left unbootable. During upgrade to kernel version 2.6.32-3, it failed at generating grub.cfg .
So I decided to check postinst script but i found nothing in there. Then I uncommented line with
atribute strict as it is mentioned in there to be usefull for debuging and I am sending log to you.
Hopefully it will help you more than it did to me.
