LInux LOader - the classic OS boot loader
installed and no bootloader at all, so do-release-upgrade installed the
recommended GRUB package.

Thank you for the explanation. I appreciate your effort. Unfortunately
I already know this. Btw. once startup finished and after
checking /dev/sda and /dev/sdb, there's no doubt which HDD is sda and
which is sdb, apart from this, a lot of systems, e.g. mine are very
stable, the order never changed.
What I actually want, is that Ubuntu gets rid of enforcing a bootloader
install and I would like to fix the FreeBSD install. GRUB does
chainload the FreeBSD loader, but most likely during the Ubuntu release
upgrade something went wrong, now the FreeBSD loader can't mount a
slice anymore. The FreeBSD install is installed to /dev/sda1.
