Bug Description

It is about this repair

"The default repair of the Boot-Repair utility will reinstall the grub-efi-amd64-signed of sda2, using the following options: sda1/boot/efi,
Additional repair will be performed: unhide-bootmenu-10s use-standard-efi-file"

I see only this action
"cp /mnt/boot-sav/sda2/boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi /mnt/boot-sav/sda2/boot/efi/EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi (& .grb)"

it seems to me that this is not enough. it would also need this command
cp /mnt/boot-sav/sda2/boot/efi/EFI/ubuntu/grub64.efi /mnt/boot-sav/sda2/boot/efi/EFI/Boot/grubx64.efi

because i think shim is only looking for grub in his own directory
