Apparently this was a system with grub2 installed on jaunty.

This bug was fixed in the package memtest86+ - 2.11-3ubuntu5

---------------
memtest86+ (2.11-3ubuntu5) karmic; urgency=low

  * debian/grub:
    - check for existance of /usr/lib/grub/grub-mkconfig_lib before
      sourcing it (LP: #459080). This fixes a upgrade failure when
      the memtest86+ postinst is run but the new grub-common is not
      yet installed
