Just update-grub? No special arguments/options? I'll try that tomorrow 
and see what happens.

Yeah, sorry about that. I said that because I have no clue what could be 
causing it. I hadn't installed any grub updates in a long time and I've 
only recently upgraded the kernel to 4.5, the only times I would think 
update-grub would run.

I swear this has happened without even installing updates before though. 
Guess I'll found out tomorrow when I run it...
