That is not normal. Unless update-grub is doing something really really
wrong, there is some other problem at work.

The "script" suggestion was a good one if the problem is not unwritable

Start "script", then enter, you get a new shell. Run your commands
(including the redirects: a cleanly redirected output is more readable than
a script recording), then exit the shell. You get a file named "typescript"
with the tty output.
