On stretch local_block is a function in a script named local, maybe using
a stretch tool on jessie has things confused? or the initramfs-tools pkg
is hosed on the bad system. Sounds complicated, one version of grub but
separate boot partitions always gets me confused too.
grep local_block /usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/local
