The actual message is:
"If the boot loader needs to be updated whenever a new kernel is
installed, the boot loader package should install a script in
/etc/kernel/postinst.d. Alternately, you can specify the command
to update the boot loader by setting the 'postinst_hook' variable
It appears that you missed the words 'specify the command'.
