Ubuntu 14 APT (apt-get) use requests to generate /boot/grub/menu.lst

Some current versions of the Ubuntu 14.04 image may request to generate the /boot/grub/menu.lst file at every run of apt-get and other APT tools.

Work-around fix is to just once only run the command (as root) : update-grub and select to allow it to generate that menu.lst file.
Answer 'y' to the prompt "Could not find /boot/grub/menu.lst file. Would you like /boot/grub/menu.lst generated for you? (y/N)"

That then satisfies the kernel upgrade test/check process and subsequent runs of apt-get install won't request this rebuild again.
