There have been many threads recently about grub-pc boot problems,
including an advisory not to update grub-pc in apt-listchanges
during the upgrade itself.
No doubt the grub fans out there will give me flak for saying this;
but honestly, if it were me, I'd install lilo and forget about
grub, at least for a while. Once you upgrade you can't easily
go back. You either wait for the bug to be fixed, or you try a
tricky and unsupported installation of a back-level package, or
you install something else. In this case the solution is to install
something else. That's what I did.
