    The update for grub2 released as DSA 4735-1 caused a boot-regression
    when chainloading another bootlaoder and breaking notably dual-boot with
    Windows. Updated grub2 packages are now available to correct this issue.
    
    For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.02+dfsg1-20+deb10u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your grub2 packages.
