This is because grub-efi-amd64-bin has been updated during DU.
You have to reinstall grub as it is shown here:

What I have to do is to mount /sys different:

mount --rbind /sys mnt/where you chroot/sys

Well, I used a live siduction-iso (mow/giants).
Booted it from a USB-Stick, clicked on the chroot-helper icon and after being root in the chrooted system (the dialog is telling all important things) I ran grub-install and to be sure after it an update-grub!
Rebooted, all is fine again!

Dual-Booting w/Windows 10 here.

All it took was:

chroot w/USB
# grub-install
# update-grub

So, I run on a second laptop an "apt full-upgrade" (it could also be nala-upgrade or apt dist-upgrade), grub got its upgrade,
After that full-upgrade, I ran "grub-install /dev/sdb" (sdb is my boot disk) and afterwards "update-grub" (I don't know if this is necessary), rebooted, and I do not have any problems so far.

Code: [Select]
apt policy grub-common
grub-common:
  Installed: 2.12~rc1-7
  Candidate: 2.12~rc1-7

As far as I can tell the problem occurs with the update of grub from
version 2.06-13 to version 2.12~rc1-7 on the 4th of September.

Only UEFI (with or w/o Secure Boot) Mode is affected. The developer
changed the lines in file /etc/grub.d/30_uefi-firmware:

if [ "\$grub_platform" = "efi" ]; then
        fwsetup --is-supported
        if [ "\$?" = 0 ]; then
                menuentry '$LABEL' \$menuentry_id_option 'uefi-firmware' {
                        fwsetup
                }
        fi

The offending command
"fwsetup --is-supported"
has no consequence for grubx64.efi in version 2.12 but causes
version 2.06 to enter the bios fw settings (obviously version 2.06
ignores the option "--is-supported" and enters the firmware settings
instead).

In rare circumstances the old grubx64.efi is not replaced by the new one.
Comment the offending line in /etc/grub.d/30_uefi-firmware as a quick fix
and run update-grub in a chroot environment as suggested.

One short information to the chroot-helper and  encrypted systems. First you have to open your crypted system before chrooting in to it.
So you have to do it by hand, sorry.

Did you decrypt via cli or from another method. I've been trying luksopen the running chroot-helper but get prompted drive is already in use. Might need to chroot manually
