Yes, I ran into this issue during a wheezy->jessie upgrade.
The affected root file system is in a lvm. At the troublesome system the first
parition starts at block 63.
Then the post-installation script returns with an error. It does not print the
error message. (Manual invocation of grub-install does)
Basically, this problem can happen (and is noteworthy in the release notes)
whenever core.img's size gets increased.
Btw. with start=512 it works. It is easy to reproduce the error, e.g., with an
256mb flash disk cfdisk leaves per default too little space for the core.img.
