I noticed the same thing last week. When you take a look at
the /sbin/update-grub script you will notice two things:

     1. The location of the news.debian file that you are looking for
     2. That instead of /sbin/update-grub the new location is
        now /usr/sbin/update-grub

I believe this means that you should manually edit the kernel-img.conf
file and change the location of update-grub.
