Bug Description

Binary package hint: grub2

1.) I am running Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid Lynx
2.) package: linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic 2.6.32-24.42
3.) What I expected to happen:
Installation of package via Update Manager
4.) What happened: package linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic 2.6.32-24.42 failed to install/upgrade: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

ProblemType: Package
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 10.04
Package: linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic 2.6.32-24.42
ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 2.6.32-24.41-generic 2.6.32.15+drm33.5
Uname: Linux 2.6.32-24-generic i686
Architecture: i386

Title: package linux-image-2.6.32-24-generic 2.6.32-24.42 failed to install/upgrade: subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Overnight my computer went into sleep mode and would not wake up when pressing the wake hot keys on keyboard, jiggling the touchpad, pressing enter, etc. I had to restart manually.

When I restarted and loaded the correct partition (the one that gave me yesterday's error message), I got the following:

error: no such device: 1cf9084e-f86b-447d-af7d-1a9db51dd094.
error: unknown file system
error: you need to load the kernel first.

press any key to continue...

Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Please, please help, as this is my only computer and I am out of a job, so I need it to work. I have another partition that works, which is how I can post here, but it doesn't have any of my files on it. Any assistance would be great.

Unfortunately my Linux laptop died so I can't answer that question for you.
