[Solved] Attempting to update grub results in error "no such file or directory"

Relatively new to linux, using a fresh install of Solus 1.2.1.

Edited /etc/default/grub, saved it using ctrl+O, and exited using ctrl+X.

I was then going to reboot after using "sudo update-grub", but when I press enter, i get the following error:

"/usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig: line 232: /boot/grub/ No such file or directory"

I have no idea why I'm getting this error. Any help would be appreciated.

Edit: Got around this by creating a new directory /boot/grub which didn't exist. update-grub worked after this.

Just out of curiosity what did you add to the /etc/default/grub file?

If you installed a newer kernel the /boot/grub/grub.cfg will be overwritten and you will loose your changes.
