This bug was fixed in the package grub2 - 2.02~beta2-14

grub2 (2.02~beta2-14) unstable; urgency=medium

  * On architectures without a real GRUB port, just build the utilities.
    This makes tools such as grub-probe and grub-fstest available
    everywhere, and makes grub-mount available on all Linux and kFreeBSD
  * Remove .MIPS.abiflags section from images (thanks, Jurica Stanojkovic,
    although I used a slightly simpler approach; closes: #762307).
  * Include a text attribute reset in the clear command for ppc
    (LP: #1295255).
  * Disable VSX instruction on powerpc startup to fix booting on ppc64el.
  * Stop adding a CHRP note on chrp_ibm machines, since that apparently
    breaks PowerVM and isn't needed on other machine types as far as we can
    tell (LP: #1334793).
  * Refactor flicker-free-boot configuration in debian/rules to reduce
  * Disable flicker-free-boot on Ubuntu ppc64el for now, as it isn't needed
    there and causes too many problems (LP: #1338471).
  * Use nvram rather than nvsetenv on chrp_ibm machines, since that tool is
    better-supported and copes with such things as nvram being missing in
  * Remove brace-expansion from the postrm, and switch the preinst and
    postrm to /bin/sh (closes: #762940).
  * On ppc64el, look for a PReP partition and install the core image to the
    first one if found. For now this is done by borrowing prep-bootdev.c
    from grub-installer, incurring a dependency on libparted.
