Bug#587388: d-i: fails to install grub-2

Subject: d-i: fails to install grub-2
Package: d-i
Version: debian-504-i386-businesscard.iso
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

Installer used on 27/06/2010 to install squeeze, which failed to install
grub-2, then failed to revert to grub-legacy, so I used dd to copy
/dev/zero to the disc and started again, attempting to install
grub-legacy. The installer informed me that it was doing an automatic
update to grub-2, which failed. The syslog showed
Jun 28 05:49:48 grub-installer: Unrecognized option `-y'
Jun 28 05:49:48 grub-installer: error: Running 'update-grub -y' failed.

Full logs available if required.
