After grub-pc is upgraded on my SSD with GPT, it no longer has a BIOS Boot Partition until I manually chroot in and set it myself

Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub2

Grub boots fine immediately after install... but as soon as the grub-pc package is upgraded, it leads me to this error upon the next boot:

"error: the symbol 'grub_term_outputs_disabled' not found Grub rescue > "

The solution was to install the BIOS Boot Partition... "sudo parted /dev/sdb set 1 bios_grub on".

This BIOS Boot Partition bit should be automatic, shouldn't it??

Here's any output that you should need...
