Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub2

THis was encountered when attempting to use the update manager to apply the most recent update to grub-pc(1.98-1ubuntu7) on Lucid Lynx. It failed to apply, and every time I use apt-get or dpkg since, it always tries to reconfigure grub-pc and throws this error.
It seems as if it's just grub-pc that refuses to reconfigure. I have attempted to reconfigure using dpkg, however it still provides the same error:
$ sudo dpkg --configure --debug=2000 grub-pc
Setting up grub-pc (1.98-1ubuntu7) ...
dpkg: error processing grub-pc (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 10
Errors were encountered while processing:
 grub-pc

I have even attempted force-all, and still have the same result.
