About the error you're mentioning, did you boot from usb?
When I used the boot-repair-disk I first used the live disk and it required for me to change my boot type setting from Legacy to UEFI and then run boot-repair-disk from a use. After the boot was fixed (ubuntu worked but windows didnt show) I restarted and removed the usb.
