Thank you for your bug report.

Do you mean apt install-ing the package from a live system ?

Actually I've changed the code from Jessie's version in order to fail in case of error following this :

I've copied KiBi who participated in the discussion.

Now what ?
Is the proposed patch deemed suitable wrt. policy, by not failing in case of error but still printing a message ?

I'd say it's not much different than the previous "|| true" because I expect update-grub/initramfs already produce relevant messages when they fail.
