I cannot reproduce this. On a reasonably current installation, this updates grub just fine. But I do have a /boot/grub/ directory; can you check (in the root shell) whether that exists for you?

This is probably related to my using an encrypted lvm partition.

This bug was fixed in the package friendly-recovery - 0.2.30

  * Implement fsck by ourselves instead of letting the boot sequence already
    do that for us. (LP: #1438860)
  * dpkg: Quiesce "file not found" errors in apt cleanup. (LP: #887589)
  * Mount all file systems after fsck (like with mountall under upstart), to
    also cover separate /boot partitions for grub. (LP: #1438862)
