I managed to resolve this issue!

I noticed that the only file in /boot with a recent timestamp was
/boot/grub/default so I renamed it. On the next boot, selecting Windows from
the GRUB boot menu I got "Error 15: File not found" but I was able to boot
into Linux nonetheless. From a console it was sufficient to give a "sudo
update-grub" to have /boot/grub/default automatically generated and the
system booting into Windows again.
