So after running my second Octopi update on this system, I got this error out in the post-transaction (I spaced out the important parts):
: Running post-transaction hooks...

So, I have very little idea of how grub works, as I have used Lilo for a long time. You also might notice I have a drive plugged in (SDA7) that is an independent slackware install from an old computer (I was toying around with Slackware before I built my new computer and now have manjaro on it... best software of any distro I have heard, not to mention easy to work with) Is that in any way related, or did something just go wrong?
Or where should I look to fix the issue (if there even is any)?
And if it is of any consequence, no I have not restarted since then, and wanted to get an answer before doing so.
