Grub fails after update

Last update brought in a grub update but now Garuda linux is not a option all chain loaded de are fine and boot the only way to boot is to go into snapshots, this is on both btrfs and ext4. setups.

so it got hit

well the solution is reinstall grub via chroot.

this may have happened due to i changed the overlay grub-garuda package to meta package which installs arch grub

this is how it should have been

i should not have provided tempered grub.

we will not replace any core arch packages from now.
only supplement some packages like from aur.
and meta packages

chroot steps in garuda linux

from live garuda usb

sudo mkdir /mnt

sudo mount /dev/sdxy /mnt

sudo garuda-chroot /mnt/@

now you should be chrooted in garuda

if the system is installed in legacy bios

then do the following in the chroot

sudo grub-install /dev/sda

if its installed on efi

first mount the efi partition ie fat32 partition
from inside the chroot

sudo mount /dev/sdxy /boot/efi


sudo grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=garuda --recheck

then update the grub

sudo update-grub

exit the chroot with
