If this should be correct running
sudo mount /dev/sda1
Oops, this should read
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt/boot /dev/sda
likely would fix the issue. But I suspect that Ubuntu is not on sda1, it more likely is on another partition. IOW 1 Ubuntu partition not necessarily is the first partition. However, simply use the live media and run
sudo parted -l
copy and paste the text, so no screenshot is required.
