I'd say it is a certainty you already have os-prober on the system
because the install pulls it in together with the grub-common package.
The command is in /usr/bin. Check. You have discovered the terminal with
its flashing cursor so type

ls -l /usr/bin/os-prober

If you get no output, my first statement is incorrect.

Want to know what happens when os-prober is run? It is in your PATH.


and press enter. If it doesn't pick up your Windows installation it
probably isn't worth doing 'update-grub' because this command uses the
output of os-prober.
