Due to current issues with Grub2 and Wubi installs, it is advisable not
to update packages grub-pc and grub-common. If you have already done so,
you may find that Ubuntu no longer boots. You may also see a Grub rescue
prompt and be unable to boot either Windows or Ubuntu. For help
resolving these issues, please see the following:

Never try to correct Wubi boot problems by reinstalling Grub2. This will
prevent Windows from booting and will not fix the Wubi install.
